I love my guinea fowl! A few weeks ago, they screamed at a hawk and chased it away. Last night after it got dark, they started screaming. They usually never scream after dark. My hubby went to see what was going on. A huge raccoon was checking out my runs/coops. My husband took care of it. Never thought I would come to love that scream.

That's why they got labeled as the "barnyard watchdogs"

My flocks alert to any/all predators too... but they are especially noisy about hawks, turkey vultures (the vultures are no threat, but the Guineas don't know that) and they go absolutely nuts about rattle snakes. Rattle snakes are why I originally got Guineas 6/12-7 yrs ago, this place was crawling with them... zero snakes now
