Guinea Fowl Keets

We offer guinea fowl keets which are the baby stage of guinea fowls. Guinea fowls, sometimes called “pet speckled hens” or “original fowl,” are birds of the family Numididae in the order Galliformes. They are endemic to Africa and rank among the oldest of the gallinaceous birds.

  • Compared to chickens, guinea fowl are low-cost and low-maintenance and can do a standout job as chemical-free pest control.
  • The offered keets were bred by reputable breeders making them your perfect choice for sustainable guinea fowl production.

 

What to expect from guinea fowl keets?

Guinea fowl keets are cute, chirpy, curious, and clumsy things that you’ll definitely need to keep an eye on, but the good news is they are so much fun to watch. They can be very inquisitive and this leaves them unfortunately prone to accident, such as dislocated legs, etc.

Your keets need to be kept in a brooder in order to keep them warm. Keep your brooder at approximately 35 degrees Celsius, otherwise, your guinea fowl keets might get a bit cold. A carefully positioned heat lamp with a thermometer strategically placed at the bottom of the brooder is the simplest way to ensure your keets stay warm during this early period of their life.

If your guinea fowl keets are huddled together with their eyes closed or squinted, this is a sure sign that they are feeling cold and you will need to warm the brooder up.

 

How to catch a guinea fowl

  • The best time to catch a guinea is after dark, but even then you have to be quick. If you swipe and miss, you may end up with a handful of feathers and one wary, semi-nude bird.
  • Never catch a guinea by its legs, as you would a chicken. If you manage to get hold of only one leg, the bird will whip around like an eggbeater and possibly break a bone.
  • The correct way to catch a guinea is to clap both hands against its wings. Once caught, carry the bird by its strong wings, never by its brittle legs. And hold on tight—even though a guinea would rather walk than fly, if one gets away from you, it’ll fly like a bird.

 

Eating guinea fowl meat

  • Guinea fowl meat is often called “poor man’s pheasant” because it tastes similar to pheasant, at considerably less cost.
  • Guinea meat is darker and richer tasting than chicken, and it contains less fat and fewer calories.
  • Guineas are also smaller-boned than chickens, but have heavier breasts, making them meatier than they look. The average bird dresses out to 75 percent of its live weight—five percent more than the 70 percent average for a broiler chicken.
  • Guinea fowl meat is drier and leaner than chicken meat and has a gamey flavor.
  • It has marginally more protein than chicken or turkey, roughly half the fat of chicken, and slightly fewer calories per gram.
  • Their eggs are substantially richer than those of chickens.

    This was my first time buying from Afrimash and I was truly amazed by the professionalism of the staff and organization especially Dr. Blessing and Ms. Opeyemi who went beyond the call of duty to ensure the poultry birds arrived on time for pickup and the aftercare they provided checking that the chicks arrived safely and care given them. They are a pride to your organization.

    Keep it up.

      • Deliveries and pickup for day-old chicks (50 chicks per carton) are scheduled for Mondays and Thursdays (Southwest Nigeria) and Tuesdays and Fridays (Other Regions) due to the longer distance of delivery from Ibadan. If you are in faraway places like Maiduguri and Adamawa, you will receive your birds on Wednesday or Saturday or on a scheduled day as informed by the Vendor/Driver/Afrimash Logistics staff.
      • Kindly place your orders within 2 days (for broilers) and at least 2 weeks ahead-prebooking (for kuroilers/noilers and turkeys) before the expected delivery days. 
      • Do not pay additional fees to the third party transporters (from Ibadan) as your order on Afrimash covers the cost of the product and the shipping fee to your location.
