They keep away insects, ticks, weed seeds and intruders, they lay some fine eggs, and they make a tasty meal. They make more than their fair share of noise, too. Guineas, or guinea fowl, are almost part of the family in many households, and Gardening with guineas will help many families raise and use them even better. Written with a good mix of enthusiasm and hard experience, this book covers housing, incubation, hatching by hen, feeding the young keets, rearing problems, foodstuffs, use of eggs, nutritional values, recipes and that issue of noise, with several tips about getting the guinea to go quiet at night. The author lives on a small farm in Ohio in central United States, and is part of a world-wide community of guinea fowl fans. During research on the Internet she found a copy of Spore with a reader s letter about the characteristics of guinea fowl. This book, Mr E T Takagi of Zimbabwe, is your answer! (We are sending our review copy to him.) All other readers will need to order it. It will, like the subject, keep you up late at night, and it s a good bet that you ll be down to the market in the morning.
