My name is Mike. I have 29 Guinea Fowl of different breeds, mostly Pearls. I also have a new member to the family that I call "Lucky" He is a Red Golden Pheasant that thinks he is a Guinea and arrived 2 weeks ago when I let the birds out to forage. Poor bird has been clipped and where I live that is a bad thing because there are plenty of predators looking for a meal. I look forward to learning a lot from this community and sharing what I may from past experiences. What else can I say? I love all birds and if I lived farther away from society I would have a zillion of them. Do I raise birds to eat...no, do I raise birds because I love to watch their mannerisms?......You bet. I can come home from a crappy day at work and watch the birds go crazy after seeing a new cat show up on the property and get in a line formation and scare it off....it is very satisfying.
