Are guinea fowl good birds that let the flock know when something is wrong or a predator is around??
oh yes! The best. Mine tell everybody when there is a hawk or even someone they don't know.
Depends on HOW MANY you have. The more the merrier. The chickens DO learn to take a hint from the Guineas. If a hawk is about the Guineas absolutely loose their "Little" collective minds.
VERY GOOD!!!!!!!!!!!! If I bring someone down to the coop they dont know the squack for a while until they learn you mean no harm.
Id say that they are excellent alarmers! I got 6 of them in September at about 2 months so there almost full grown now body wise anyways. I love them. They alert at anything and sometimes just alert cause they want to. They ran off a few stray cats that tried to eat My chickens.
My grandma has 46 guineas I dont know how to tell if they are alarming or not they never shut up. lol
