My Guinea Keets will be used for land management. Ticks have been progressively moving North and we now solidly have them in Canada. The last several years the population seems to have boomed. I use an essential oil blend to deter them which works quite well but I'd like to control their overall population. It is not unusual to emerge from a hike in the woods with several ticks on you. Guinea Fowl are tick eating monsters. One bird will clear an acre of ticks and can average eating 4000 ticks a day. So this is an experiment to see if they can reduce the tick s on my property. Of course once they are old enough and have been trained to return to a coop at night, they will free range the property. They lay small eggs similar to a bantam chicken which are very good. But Guineas are unreliable layers and will deposit eggs at the base of trees or where ever instead of in their coop's nesting box. They are also good eating. Some say they are the best chicken they've ever had! But my Guineas will spend their lives patrolling the property for ticks and garden bugs. I'm spending a lot of time with them, getting them used to my voice and used to being handled. They are a wilder fowl compared to the more domesticated chickens or turkey and I'm hoping that through lots of human socialization I can tame them down a bit and respond to my call. I'm training them with white millet which is a favorite treat. Here is a pic. It is terrible as there is not a lot of light and they are kept under a red heat lamp. They are 3 days old. So, you can imagine that my VapCap comes in handy when I'm spending the day sitting on the ground, yammering on endlessly to a bunch of little baby bird brains while picking each of them up, checking them over for any potential problem, petting them and then on to the next. I'm using my Hammered Titanium stem from @stardustsailor right now and hope to one day soon obtain a knurled stem from him once he begins production once more. The knurled stem will live out in the workshop which is doubling right now as a Guinea brooder. It will blend in nicely with the tool box bits. I love the first stem here. http://fuckcombustion.com/threads/custom-carbless-vapcap-ti-stems.25324/page-22#post-1250139 I'm also thinking of getting one of the Titanium bolt stash that he recommends. https://www.ebay.com/itm/132606821076 @Radamisto You have a fantastic set up and your quail are beautiful!
