    Guinea are tic controller and the meat ist tasty, so the eggs. They are good watchdogs and their feathern are so georges with all the the polka dots. And they are clowns so much fun to watch them

    Guineas are Great for controlling ticks, ants, and all kinds of bugs and even snakes too. I heard one person say the their guineas killed a 5 foot long snake. They are also great watch dogs and bark at anything that comes into your yard. I also breed them and sell them for some extra money.
