Certainly not as pretty as your grouse or pheasant, here is our version of a pheasant.

Guinea fowl was plentiful when I grew up and almost disappeared in recent years. The last 3 years our seasons was completely mixed up with rain in the dry seasona nd drought in the supposed wet season with the effect of the guinea fowl laying two batches of eggs and this seamed to have given the population a boost back to its former glory.

Worst a$$ whippin I ever got was from trying to steal chicks from under a Guinea hen as they were hatchin. You can keep em Knersie. I never want to see another one as long as I live.

In the future I would advise all 5 year olds to pick easier game.

Knersie, are those guineas native to South Africa? Pretty common around farmyards here. All the ones I've seen show zero ability to take wing. Are yours like that? I suppose you know the Ringneck pheasants in this country are non-native?

I'm curious about the lion issue also, I realize you guys in SA don't have Tigers or bears, but do they have most of the lions confined to certain areas of Africa? Where I live we have Cougar (mountain lions) sightings and reports within a couple of miles of us several times a year.

Oh, not to hijack the thread.... I hate the guineas..... way too much obnoxious noise produced.

Yes, they are native, they can fly from only a few weeks old.

Yes, very few lions in the wild, none close to where I live. We still have leopards in the mountain, see paw prints once or twice a year, but have never lost any cattle to them, have lost sheep though.

No crap sherlock

Hah... I ment to quote Alans text, becouse when you talk about africa you need to remember how big that area is. "Certain areas where lions live" might be rather big. Like 2X China or US. :lol2: I hope you understand what I'm trying to say....

The native African guinea fowl, both helmeted and crested, are smaller than the domestic strains found in Europe and USA, have a pigmented, rather than white skin, and fly fast and high making far better sport than the overweight pheasant here in the UK. The francolin, partridge and quail all make good sport 'walking up' on rather than 'driving' them.
