have decided to keep my white guinea fowl, a decision I made before I knew the gender of the bird but luckily for me the white guinea fowl is female.
I would like to give her a name as she will become part of the farmingfriends family of named animals, so if you have any good suggestions then please let me know so that I can set up a poll and get your votes.
Suggestions already made are;
- Snowy by TopVeg.
- Cotton by Michelle.
- Coco by Michelle.
- Nilla by Michelle.
- Crisco by Michelle.
- Miss White by Diane.
The white guinea fowl is a female and she is 6 months old. She stays in a gang of 6 guinea fowl which all hatched out together. She is a very vocal guinea fowl and is always calling out.
Fiona and Danny @ The Cottage Smallholder hatched some of my guinea fowl eggs under their lovely broody hen, Mrs Boss, producing 4 lavendar and one white guinea fowl. They named their white guinea fowl Lightning, however tragically Lightning’s life was only very short. I did wonder whether I could call my white guinea fowl Lightning the 2nd, in memory of Lightning. Fiona and Danny, let me know what you think as I don’t want to upset you. Actually I have just re-read Fiona’s post about the tragic news of the loss of Lightning and after wiping away the tears I once again shed for Lightning I wondered whether Angel or Hope might be good names for my white guinea fowl. Let me know what you think.
I will endeavour to take a more up to date photo of my white guinea fowl so that you can cast your eyes over her beautiful white feathers for inspiration.
