I have 16 thriving Guinea Fowl Ketts now 12 weeks old running Free-Range during the day.
They are kept for meat, eggs and insect control.
I herd them out in a hay meadow in the morning as they otherwise stay in or around the yard and make an awful mess.
They find their way home in the evening where they start an eating frenzy the moment they enter their shed.
I have noticed that they spend most of their day time eating a few grass seeds, but do not seem to be much interested in the insects around them.
They seem more eager to just rummage around in the tall grass or to find a south facing sunny slope where they just lay in a cluster to be baked by the sun and will only occasionally take an interest in the grass seeds or perhaps some goose grass otherwise they spend the time sitting on a fence rail preening and socializing.
Do I over feed them? I finished a 20Kg bag of Smallholders Turkey finisher pellets in 20day's that is 62.5 gram / bird, does that sound OK?
