Guinea Fowl

Guinea fowl (Numida meleagris) are native to Africa (Fig. 8). They are domestically raised and marketed as a specialty fowl in many parts of the world. Guinea females are reported to lay about 150 eggs in a 9-month season. Chicks are hatched artificially and raised much like meat chickens or turkeys. The meat of young guineas is reported to be excellent with a slightly gamy flavor. Eviscerated packaged birds typically weigh 3.5 to 4 lb and are often sold in an eviscerated, whole-body package for about $3 per pound.
