    Hello! I have just joined. I found this site when I googled "guinea fowl" to research this creature. We have Lymes and other similar disease in our home and the yard/woods are full of ticks…so we hope to start a bevy of gf this spring. We have no chickens in our yard, though our neighbor has chickens a distance away…we all live on the same property in NH. So, wonder if we should have a couple of chickens as well as guinea fowl? Where in NH can we find GF and so many other questions! I look forward to researching and picking your brains!

    Welcome BYC!

    Guineas love insects. Great that you are looking for information to get started.

    Best place to ask about the Guineas, would be over here...https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/45/guinea-fowl
    They will help you get the egg rolling.

    Alright and [​IMG] glad to have you onboard with us [​IMG]

    Ticks you say oh they are such a delicacy [​IMG]



    [​IMG]
    Yum, yum, ticks good stuff [​IMG]

    These critters will go to town on bugs and you might want to keep an
    eye on them as they tend to wonder as their search for bugs will take
    them anywhere and everywhere [​IMG] But the bug problem in my yard
    disappeared in less then a week after getting these guys but then my
    yard is only 400 yards long by 180 feet deep so there really isn't a lot
    of ground for them [​IMG]
