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.
