Valley Hatchery is excited to offer our Guinea Keet special, featuring a selection of our high-quality guinea varieties including White, Lavender, Pearl, and Royal Purple. These hardy birds are native to the West Coast of Africa and have a long history dating back to ancient Egypt and Greece, where they were prized for their meat and eggs. Guinea Fowl are known for their strong watchdog abilities and their ability to eat ticks and bugs.
Guinea Fowl are difficult to sex by sight, but males typically utter a one-syllable call (chit, chit, chit) while females have a two-syllable call (buck-wheat, buck-wheat). They are known for hiding their nests and then appearing with a large group of keets when allowed to free range. They also like to roost high in trees.
Please note that while we try to include a variety of guinea varieties with this special, it is dependent on what hatches at the hatchery. We cannot guarantee a specific variety, so it’s a surprise what breeds you’ll receive! We do not record or note the varieties sent, adding to the excitement of this special. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to add these fascinating and useful birds to your flock with Valley Hatchery’s Guinea Keet special.
