    Guinea Fowl are great but I wouldn't get any

    Love our guineas. Great alarms when something or someone comes up especially at night that doesn’t belong. I have seen them eating small snakes and they really have helped with the tick problem and getting worms off garden plants. Not really a meat bird but great guardians.

    Gardeners are blessed
