3/8/2022 We got 3 Guineafowls! They are not only beautiful, but they are very useful in our farm. They eat all of the pests in the garden, loam around our entire property and act as our alarm system! They make crazy loud noise when they see something odd.
According to Animal.net, these birds are omnivores, and feed on a variety of seeds and small invertebrates. They eat a wide variety of foods, including spiders, ticks, beetles, maggots, insect larvae, fruits, berries, lizards, snakes, and even small mammals or more. Humans have domesticated the Helmeted Guineafowl, primarily as a food source. People also frequently keep them in addition to other fowl, because they hunt and eat a variety of pesky insects. Additionally, these vocal birds help alert other fowl, like chickens, when a potential predator is nearby.
The National Wildlife Federation (NWF), America's largest wildlife conservation and education organization, is pleased that Kozue Maye at Poof Dirt Farms in Pahrump, NV has successfully created a certified Wildlife Habitat through its garden for "Wildlife" movement.
