Guinea hen’s popularity seems to be on the rise. These peculiar looking birds are quite the talk of the town wherever they are seen. They are a strange looking bird to be sure, once seen, never forgotten.


Spring Hollow Acres imports their breeding stock of Guinea Fowl from France. These birds do not reach sexual maturity until their second year making it very difficult to sex these birds. Each gender has a different vocalization so this can help differentiate the two. The female will call what sounds like ‘buck-wheat, buck-wheat, buck-wheat’, the males will only emit a ‘chi, chi, chi’ sound.
