What are the little knobs on guineas heads called?
Helmets. The domestic guinea is the Helmeted Guinea fowl, one of six (or is it three?) speicies of guinea.
Do you know the different kinds of species?
Crested (goofy looking!)
all Guineas are from order Galliformes (with chickens and gamebirds) and family Phasianidae. They are wild in Africa, and can be quite a pest to the African Farmers, due to their voracious appitite for bugs, ticks and seeds.
You should definately read Gardening with Guineas if you haven't already! It is very helpful if you raise guineas. I don't yet but would like to get some.
Hope this helps!
Thank you! I was planning on getting that book anyways
