One of Jesse's school projects was to research Guinea Fowl, buy the necessary materials, build a coop and buy the birds. So, after two weeks of building and researching he finished the coop and found the birds and bought them. They are a mating pair, 4 months old. For those of you who know Jesse, he had a Quail and Chicken project in Texas and really enjoyed raising the birds. They are eating all of the bugs in our yard and fighting the dogs for rice. They make really pretty noises and are much cleaner than chickens.
