    How noisey are guinea and pea fowl exactly? I have heard they can be but i wanna get some. I dont live in a city there is no real noise requirement levels but i still have neibours. Would it compare on the noise level of a dog barking or a rooster crowing and do they make the noise often?

    Much less than a rooster or dog I think, a dog and rooster are noisy all year around guineas are not [​IMG]

    If the neighbors can put up with a rooster then the guineas will be a breeze [​IMG]

    Hi there, Well they all have the machine gun call, and generally only when something they don't like is around.... BUT the girls can be a constant pain COME BACK< COME BACK< COME BACKKK, is what the female unique call sounds like.... My father stayed with us on the farm for a while, and he said the female guinea's call was the one that got him the most, but to me it's just background noise [​IMG] PS it was around 30 girls though [​IMG]

    guineas make noise all the time...I have five males right now...females all nested in fields and something got to them before I could find them. I personally, like the sound of guineas. I always know when something/someone is here who doesn't belong here as they alert me. They always alert to danger. They will surround a snake screaming till I bring the gun. lol When I go outside they run to me and surround me looking for treats. I would love to have some females but don't want to lose anymore to predators and won't keep them penned up.
