Everyone told us Guinea Fowl were not friendly birds. Not to expect them to let us handle them, to count on them trying to roost in the trees etc. Ours how ever allow my girls to carry them around like babies. I frequently find the girls toting a bird around the yard. I always ask them what are your doing. They tell me well they let us carry them so why not. They have started laying eggs, they wont lay in a nesting box but they do always lay in one corner of there house so the eggs are super easy to find. We have been getting around 3 eggs a day or 21 eggs a week. Guinea eggs are smaller than chicken eggs but they taste just the same. So for your entertainment here is my daughter holding a Guinea like one of her baby dolls.
