Reichenow's Helmeted Guinea Fowl
Kenya Crested Guinea Fowl
I would love a trio of Reichenows..... Eventually when I get my Poultry house built and popper runs established. That and Vulturines.
I love the Crested Guineas!
Does anyone know where you can buy some?
Quote:A friend of mine here in East Texas raises them. They are quite but not as cold hardy as regular guineas. He would love to sell you some but he didn't get a single egg this year. Maybe next year will be better.
I found a pair of adult Reichenow's for sale. They are eight hundred dollars. I still wouldnt mind having a pair at least. Locked up in high security with armed guards.....
sigh, would love to get crested & vulturines here in Australia one day.
I love the Reichenow's, they are very striking in person. The ones up for sale are mine, but they are $600, I accidently typed a 8 but its fixed now. Reichenow's handle cold nearly as well as domestic Guineas, they are just prettier, and far less noisy. Cant let them free range though, they will leave and are very wild natured. They need very large flights with plenty of cover to breed, I have excellent success in 50ft by 50ft pens. The Crested Guineas are almost extinct in the US. My Crested Guineas do fine down to the 20's in the winter, but I lock them up if it snows or gets any colder. Crested are just more disease prone.

Quote:How tall does the flight pen need to be?
I have lots of space but would have to build separate housing from the regular guineas. I am planning on about 50 x 25 covered run for them. to share with the chickens The side walls will be six feet then the net gets strung between on Tripods or something similar.
My friend Tom across the street used to raise Pheasants for game hunters hes a pro at building flight pens. The kind Coyotes cant get into....
Those vulturines are really crazy looking. I'd love to have a trio of them!
