The French Pearl Guinea Fowl is imported from France and are raised often for the meat since they grow considerably fast than other guinea varieties and weigh about 2 pounds more than the other guinea fowl. Many restaurants are in demand of their dark, tender and lean meat. These baby keets grow into birds know for their unique ornamental value. Two weeks after hatching they are one of the hardiest domestic fowl. Guinea Fowl have a reputution for their "watch dog" personalities and providing a insect population reduction, especially ticks. Despite the myth that has spread concerning French Guineas have an inability to reproduce naturally, it is not true. They do reproduce naturally and have an excellent chance of doing so if allowed to free range.
