Guinea Fowl: Your Overlooked Backyard Buddy – Modern Farmer #rich #exterminators

Guinea Fowl: Your Overlooked Backyard Buddy

Loud, goofy-looking, flocking birds might not sound like the best backyard companion. Perched high in treetops, guinea fowl aren’t the classically handsome of the bird family, appearing more like mutated vultures than a downy chicken. With their featherless head and polka-dotted feathers, these fowl once roamed the central African plains and resent captivity to this day. But if you’re concerned with improving our food system’s addiction to pesticides and looking for an alternative ‘jack of all trades’ barnyard animal, consider the often-overlooked guinea fowl.

Just don’t write them off because of their screeching.

Baby guineas, called keets, are about as adorable as they sound and easy to tend. But once they grow older they are worthy watchdogs, fighting off trespassers both human and animal alike.

Bruce King, who sells live guineas at Ebey Farms in Everett, Washington, provides an annotated list of reasons why guinea fowl make such good farm animals: their tastiness, their relatively low-maintenance lifestyles, their vigilance at keeping away predators. Guinea fowl make an interesting and colorful addition to your flock and are very useful on the farm to alert and protect other animals from predators, he says. But recently, he has seen an increase in what he calls “revenge sales.”

King said urbanites buy the noisiest, screechiest birds from him to satisfy vengeance against their complaining neighbors.

In addition to providing home-security help, guinea fowl are valued as one of the best exterminators of pest insects, making them a complement to any backyard garden. Since guineas prefer to mobilize in tight-knit groups, don’t be alarmed when they don’t understand the nuances of property lines and roadways.

They free-range and will naturally roost in trees if left without a shelter to sleep in. They are also tick-eating machines.

Guinea Fowl International President Cindy Gibson notes that using them to control ticks and other bugs is their truest claim to fame. Further evidence of guineas as pest control comes from her Lexington, Texas, farm which was once overrun by grasshoppers. After using “every pesticide known to man,” Gibson added some guinea fowl to her mix of llamas, donkeys and pigs and found the grasshopper problem was miraculously solved. “I’ve been a fan ever since.”

Guinea fowl are valued as one of the best exterminators of pest insects, making them a complement to a backyard garden.

Guinea fowl have long been considered a prized game bird, right up there with pheasants and quail. Understandably, the Egyptians considered the guinea fowl a luxury food for the wealthy. Guineas are gaining in popularity in the U.S. outselling their pheasant and quail friends. You may have seen them at the farmers market: their meat is darker than chicken, leaner than chicken, rich with vitamins and low in cholesterol. Aaron Rocchino of the Oakland, California-based The Local Butcher’s Shop says that their guinea hens come in year-round every few weeks and that they always sell out.

The USDA believes that guinea-fowl farming is on the rise and has recently started compiling inventory statistics. The numbers support that claim: There are more than 14,500 guinea farms in the U.S. fourth in fowl after chicken, turkeys and ducks. The numbers of actual guineas being sold is paltry (paltry poultry!), but still indicates that there is a growing interest in raising guineas on hobby and small farms.

Dozens of enthusiasts joined Gibson at the recent Guinea Fowl International Conference in Kent, Ohio. held in September. Part of the mission of the nine-year-old group is to distribute and promote guineas at poultry shows and to educate USDA extension agents. They have seen a steady membership increase of guinea fowl farmers, both commercial hatcheries and backyard hobbyists that use them to complement their gardens and farms. The latter are concerned with how to care for their farm animals without using pesticides or other chemicals.

“It’s a natural fallout that people who have guineas are thinking about sustainable farming,” noted Carolyn McDermott of Star, North Carolina.

Meanwhile, there seems to be a steady increase in the number of young farmers who have adopted guineas into their flock.

“People laugh when they first visit,” says Cara Sammons who, along with her family and her husband Devin Shepard, started Flying Goat Farm. an 11-acre goat and cheese farm in Acton, Maine. When they first moved into their farm, chickens and guineas came first, followed soon after by their namesake goats. They often use their guineas as watchdogs for their herd. Sammons laughs about the way they alert if a fox or other predator comes by, or if they notice anything unusual, adding that they didn’t like the lawnmower moved around the farm.

“They sound like a machine gun going off when there is a fox in the yard,” Sammons says.

5 Reasons to have Guineas

1. Watchdogs. Guineas do a great job at guarding your property, sounding a halting alarm when something unfamiliar approaches. Hawk, hawk, hawk!

2. Nutritious eggs and meat. Unlike chickens, who produce eggs throughout the year, guineas typically lay large a couple of times a year. Don’t let their tiny size get you down (two guinea eggs equals one large chicken egg) The flavor is more delicate. Guinea meat is darker and richer than chicken, with less fat and lower cholesterol, and considered a delicacy in Europe and some trendy American restaurants.

3. Sustainable Living. These low-maintenance birds helpfully protect other farm animals and are free from poultry diseases that are troublesome to most farmers. Their nutrient-rich manure can be composted and used in the garden.

4. Pest Control. Working as a team, guineas will eat any pest they can get their beaks on, but unlike chickens, do so without tearing and scratching up your garden. Since they free-range, they will hunt ticks (or beetles, fleas, grasshoppers, crickets, snakes) all over your property. They are a more natural option to control the insect pest population than pesticides.

5. Entertainment. What great personalities! What beautiful plumage! What strange looking feathers! You can see them in colors ranging from pearl grey to lavender, royal purple and blue. They’re very curious and fun to watch.

Top 10: Highest-Paying Jobs In The U.S.

Have you always dreamed of paying off your credit card debt. and then owning a yacht, a sparkly new Lamborghini and a place in the Hamptons? Hate to break it to you, but money doesn t grow on trees you have to work for it (unless you were born rich). And for many of the highest-paying careers, you ll need years of education as well as on-the-job training. But if you pick the right career and put in the time, even you yes, you could be making it rain.

For this Top 10 list, we ve tallied up the annual mean wages for the highest-paying jobs in the U.S. workforce as reported by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) in May 2015 (the most recent figures available). However, we should note that we made a slight change. Most of the highest-paying jobs in the U.S. are in the medical field, so we ve grouped doctors and surgeons together to avoid this list becoming 10 reasons why you should ve studied more in high school science and gone to med school. Without further ado, here are the highest-paying careers in the United States.

10. Lawyers

Annual mean wage: $133,260
Training time: 7 years

Ahh, just what the world needs, more lawyers. Reactions like these aren t uncommon when it comes to the legal profession, but when you re in a bind, you ll be thankful to have a good lawyer by your side. Lawyers have to go through years of schooling, and read a stupid amount of text to do what they do, but they re usually paid well when they get hired. Oh, and they re considered the most attractive profession on Tinder, so there s that. More than half a million lawyers make up the workforce, which amounts to nearly as many doctors and surgeons. California and New York lead the way with nearly 150,000 practicing lawyers working in the two states alone, but those in Washington, DC, are the highest paid on average. Lawyers typically need a bachelor s degree in pretty much anything within the arts and sciences, three years of law school and completion of the bar exam. If you want to join the best of the best, go to law school at Yale .

9. Airline Pilots, Co-Pilots and Flight Engineers

Annual mean wage: $136,400
Training time: 6+ years

Want to have your office above the clouds, get free travel and make lots of money? Easy, become a pilot. Well, maybe easy isn t the best word to use. Becoming a pilot requires a bachelor s degree in an aviation-related discipline, a commercial pilot s license from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and an Airline Transport Pilot (ATP) certificate. You ll also need several hundred hours of pilot-in-command experience, specialized training in specific tools and devices, as well as regular physical and mental testing. It s all pretty expensive and time-consuming, and it can take 10 years or longer before a newly minted pilot starts making serious cash flying the longer scheduled passenger flights. But that s not the end of it. Airline jobs, particularly for popular commercial airlines, are expected to be scarce in the coming years, so if you want to get a job, you might have to fly for low-cost regional airlines and nonscheduled aviation services, at least to start. There s not really an undisputed champ when it comes to the best school for aviation, but the Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. which has campuses in Florida and Arizona, is a good school.

8. Natural Sciences Managers

Annual mean wage: $136,570
Training time: 4+ years

Natural sciences managers are the head honchos in the lab who supervise scientists in fields such as biology, physics and chemistry, and split their time between office and lab work. The highest-paid in this field work in the tech industry with semi-conductors and electronics manufacturing and are most likely to be employed in California. Interestingly, while technology as well as R D appear to be booming, natural sciences managers are projected to have slower than average growth over the next eight years, according to the BLS. Becoming a natural sciences manager typically requires a bachelor s degree in a scientific field, followed by several years working in labs. If you like chemistry or physics, you ll want to go to the University of California – Berkeley. while the best school for biology is Harvard .

7. Marketing Managers

Annual mean wage: $140,660
Training time: 4+ years

It s not just about what you re selling, it s how you sell it. The prestigious world people like (the fictional) Don Draper worked in back in the 1950s is still prestigious, and one of the highest-paying. However, the highest-paid marketing managers don t just work in advertising or promotions, they work in securities and commodity exchanges, which manage money trading on places like Wall Street. Although, there are just 60 people in the country with that job, so it might not be the best field to target. Marketing in general is a field where the required education is a bit cloudy. Many businesses want you to have a bachelor s degree in marketing, but years of experience and an eye-catching portfolio can help elevate you to the level of marketing manager. The best marketing school in the country is up by the Canadian border at the University of Michigan Ross Marketing School in Ann Arbor.
