Keeping Guinea Fowl (International Poultry Library) by John Butler

Keeping Guinea Fowl book. Keeping Guinea Fowl (International Poultry Library). 1857363329 (ISBN13: 9781857363326).

Guinea fowl are often kept for their meat, which is regarded as a delicacy. They taste slightly gamey, although milder than pheasant, and a full-grown guinea fowl should just about feed four people. There is a tendency to dryness, so pheasant recipes are a better bet than those designed for chicken. Even the feathers are useful – they can be sold for making fishing flies or for craft/millinery work. Guinea fowl can be bullies with other poultry and won’t easily tolerate newcomers. They seem to particularly pick on cockerels too. They can be relentless in their pursuit of a victim, and may keep him or her away from the food.
