    I've heard from a couple different people that guinea meat is good. It's usually a darker meat like pheasant.

    Maybe it is an acquired taste. Like one day you get so fed up with the noise, that you just can't help but enjoy eating their meat because they were so annoying. [​IMG]
    I had not believed how loud they could be. People say the same about ducks and turkeys. Even roosters. I haven't had any problems with any of them.
    Maybe the guineas act differently when they aren't in my yard?

    I haven't heard that about ducks or turkeys or roosters. Maybe certain birds are louder than others or more annoying but I think as a group the other fowl makes less noise. Guineas on the other hand.........all they do is make noise.

    So pretty!

    guuneas are just obnoxious, and don't roost where they are supposed to, and they're ugly. Chickens eat just as many ticks in my opinion. I can't fathom why someone would have them
