    Is anyone working on breeding silent Guineas? My yard is infested with snakes and ticks. I would love a large flock, but am worried about noise and the neighbors. It seems there would be more demand for Guineas if they wheren't so loud.

    There would be more demand for roosters if they weren't so noisy too! [​IMG] Unfortunately, they are both going to remain loud but effective.

    However, chickens will take care of ticks in your yard if they're allowed to free range in your yard. Also....they will catch small snakes, and play tug-o-war with them! [​IMG] Then gobble down the pieces!
