    I am wanting to Raise a few Guineas, but I am in the Suburbs and I know how much racket they make. Could y'all
    please tell me at what age do they do they start making a lot of racket. I guess what I want to ask is, If I was going to raise some to Eat,
    at what age would I have to Process them, before they make all my neighbors mad at me...?? Any help would be greatly appreciated!! [​IMG]

    Thanks,

    Frank

    Usually Guineas raised for meat are butchered at 16 weeks... they can start getting noisy at around 6-8 wks tho, and once one discovers their voice it's all down hill from there lol.
