Domestic guinea fowls (numida meleagris), sometimes called ‘pintades’, are poultry originating from africa. guinea fowls are integral part of the lives of the rural communities and are reared for varied functions, including acting as a source of food, beautification, royalty, dowry and gifts (naazie et al., 2002).
there are hardly any cultural barriers against the consumption of guinea fowls (koney 2004). the contribution of guinea fowls to the livelihood of the rural farmers is enormous.
compared to village chickens, guinea fowl’s advantages are: low production cost, premium quality meat, greater capacity to scavenge for insects and grains, more heat tolerant, ability to protect itself against predators and better resistance to common poultry parasites and diseases (microlivestock 1991; kusina et al, 2012). the meat and eggs of the bird is a delicacy.
