Guineas can be a great addition to your flock for several reasons. They eat lots of insects, especially devouring ticks. Guineas are also excellent alarms and can help protect your flock from daytime predators.
Guinea hens can lay 60-100 eggs per year, but they do tend to hide their nests. Guineas have rich, dark, flavorful meat and are considered a delicacy in many areas. Male guineas weigh about 3.5 pounds and females about 3 pounds. They can easily fly short distances and like to roost high in trees.
