Description

The French Pearl Guinea Fowl is imported from France and are raised often for the meat since they grow considerably fast than other guinea varieties and weigh about 2 pounds more than the other guinea fowl. Many restaurants are in demand of their dark, tender and lean meat. These baby keets grow into birds know for their unique ornamental value. Two weeks after hatching they are one of the hardiest domestic fowl.
Guinea Fowl have a reputution for their “watch dog” personalities and providing a insect population reduction, especially ticks.
Despite the myth that has spread concerning French Guineas have an inability to reproduce naturally, it is not true. They do reproduce naturally and have an excellent chance of doing so if allowed to free range.

Cackle Hatchery® guinea keets must be shipped in a separate compartment from all other poultry. We do this because the small keets will peck the toes of other poultry and injure them during shipment.

Cackle Hatchery® ships your baby guinea keet orders May-Aug and it is recommended to order in March and April to secure and reserve your baby keets. We hope you enjoy our guinea fowl breeds and check out our caring for keets.

Orders for French Guineas must be placed on a separate order and not with any other birds. 
We can not ship guineas to Hawaii.

    Loud but Loved

    Our little flock of 25 (now 24 thanks to a hawk) are adorably loud, free ranging by day & a constant source of delight. They love to speak all at once & run around at least 3-4 acres of our larger farm. They require companionship among themselves but don’t do well around humans (other than getting treats). If you’re looking for a “pet” bird, look for another type of fowl…mine aren’t fond of people or like being handled. However, they are amazing as a group, will eat almost any bug around & will step all over each other to get a treat. We trained ours to come back to the coop each evening by ringing a bell & giving meal worms. They will run across several acres to get back for an evening snack before going inside for the night. I would definitely buy again, especially from Cackle Hatchery!!! They’re the BEST hatchery around!!!

    Great birds

    Great birds and arrived healthy and happy with extra birds. I’ve had birds a couple months and have lost none and look like great gene birds. Will be coming back for more.

    Healthy birds

    I received 26 keets. One had an eye injury and had to be culled, but these things happen. The birds were otherwise healthy and grew out in 16 weeks. Processed, they were 3-4 lbs. Very pleased overall.

    Beloved flock of loudmouths

    We purchased 25 guineas and at almost a year later we have a refined flock after harvesting 9 males, and losing a few to wildlife. Our 11 stick close to home while free ranging our mountain plot. They are beautiful, friendly, have eradicated the tick problem. We adore our guineas. They lay consistently and we’re hoping they produce offspring naturally in the spring.

    Good quality keets

    I purchased several times guineas from your company for myself and my daughter and I’m very pleased with my birds

    Good Birds

    We bought 50, they seem to be pretty hearty little fellas, you have to keep plenty of protein in the pen, just wild bird seed is not enough protein as it is to sustain them. They are happy, funny little fellas, they chase bugs in the yard like its their job (which it kind of is). They are about two months old now and already have personalities, our three year old loves her “chickens”. We’re pleased with this purchase.
