Guineas: The New Flock
After our rat issue precipitated by over-wintering the guinea hens we have decided to only keep them from spring till fall and butcher them for meat. So, we butchered the birds last fall and have been eating them slowly over the winter, most recently in a tasty guinea pot pie. With spring coming soon we ordered a new batch. They’ll be in the house 6-8 weeks, move out to the barn for another 6-8 weeks and then be set free to eat ticks in the yard.
