    I have 5 guines that I would like to buthcer if not too late. I have seen small info that they are great for eating. I orginally wanted them for organic pest eaters. The biggest problem with them is they eat the produce as well as the bugs. Had more trouble with them eating my tomatoes vs. the layers and the turkeys. Plus they travel very far sometimes over a mile away. Getinng anoid so I thought about taking them in to the butcher and need ideas how to cook them. Plus they can be pretty mean toward my layers. Very my space only birds. Ahhhhh!
