The male makes a loud one syllable call while the female makes a two syllable call. The female can make both sounds and randomly calls for someone named “Joe Clark”, or at least that is what it sounds like she is calling. There are four males in our flock of guineas and evidently none of them are “Joe”.
Today’s post was about how loud Guinea Fowl can be. But I must end by saying that they are also
an asset to the farm in spite of their vocal antics. I think they are beautiful and certainly entertaining! They lay delicious eggs and are great foragers. They love to eat insects, especially ticks!
