Originating from the West Coast of Africa, these hardy birds boast a rich history dating back to ancient Egypt and Greece, where they were esteemed for their meat and eggs. Celebrated for their robust watchdog abilities and effective pest control, Guinea Fowl are a valuable addition to any homestead.

The Royal Purple Guinea, distinguished as one of the most visually stunning Guinea breeds, exhibits a dark black plumage adorned with a mesmerizing iridescent purple sheen, complemented by lightly spotted white wing feathers. This distinctive coloring not only enhances their aesthetic appeal but also serves a practical purpose by concealing dirt and dust, maintaining a pristine appearance. Known for their exceptional foraging abilities, these birds adeptly collect harmful bugs without causing any damage to the garden or lawn. Furthermore, the Royal Purple Guinea Fowl, like all Guinea breeds, excels in alertness and vocalization when sensing threats, making them excellent alarm systems for the overall safety of your flock.

Males typically emit a concise one-syllable call (chit, chit, chit), while females articulate a more elaborate two-syllable call (buck-wheat, buck-wheat).

Additionally, Guinea Fowl exhibit a preference for roosting high in trees.
