Since we first bought the farm, my mother has encouraged me to get a few Guinea hens. Guineas were one of her favorite farm animals as a child with their antics providing hours of comical entertainment. How could a good daughter say no?
Got Mr. Farmer on board when we discovered that Guineas are excellent tick munchers! With the onset of warm weather and working outside, we have found that our farm is a haven for ticks. Everyone will be a little happier with fewer of those around!
