    I was wondering if someone could give me information on raising french guineas, I have looked on the internet and I can't find anything but recipes lol. I know they can't reproduce and things like that. but are they diffrent from other gunieas? can they fly? I'm new to gunieas so any thing would be appreciated!

    They are just larger and yes they can fly. There is also a jumbo guinea that can reproduce.

    From what I have heard they have to be artifically bred

    anything I can , all I know is they can't naturally reproduce and they are heavier than the other breeds.
