Whilst I was visiting my mum before I went into hospital, we went to a garden centre and they had Guinea Fowl, Free Ranging. I do like them and wish I had more land which allowed me to have a few!!!!

Very interesting about the differences in their calls. I remember watching a show last year about how chicks are sexed. The fellow doing the worke was very experienced and quickly had hundreds of chicks sorted.

Hi Libby
Guinea fowl are beautiful birds that have very quirky temperaments that make them a pleasure to watch. They can be noisy but you don’t need an alarm clock with them around!
Thanks for dropping by and commenting. Sara from farmingfriends

Hi Nikkipolani,
It is interesting to hear the different calls and it is a good way of sexing the male and females. I do have to say that they are very noisy. Thanks for your interesting comment and for visiting.

Hi Bill,
I am sorry to hear that your guinea fowl is on it’s own. If only I was closer you could get some guinea fowl from me, but I am in Yorkshire. If i come across any guinea fowl breeders in your area I will email you.
Hope you get some females.
