guinea fowl did you know?(3 posts)
Thanks for this. I have found out that Guinea Fowl appear in Greek mythology: When Meleager, who succeeded in killing the Caledonian boar, was killed, his sisters Deianira (wife of Hercules) and Gorge were put to death and turned into Guinea Fowl by Artemis. The tears that they shed showering their plumage with white spots.
For those who keep guinea fowl and have young children or grand children might enjoy this book How The Guinea Fowl Got Her Spots by Barbara Knutson http://farmingfriends.com/how-the-guinea-fowl-got-her-spots/
