French Guineas are the same color as Pearl Guineas but are much larger. French Guinea breeders have for many generations, intently selected this variety for rapid growth and for year round production of eggs. French Guineas, when fed a high energy, high protein ration similar to broiler feed, will weigh in excess of 4 pounds at 13 weeks of age. They will lay throughout the year with proper light and heat control, but must be artificially inseminated for acceptable fertility. Guineas, which are known as keets, are very active and easy to raise. After about 4 weeks of age, they require very little attention and will take care of themselves by hustling for their food. Some of the benefits of having a farm flock of guineas are as follows: very fine "watch dogs", keep snakes away from the farm and consume grasshoppers, ticks (including those which carry Lyme Disease) and other insects.

Keets are available only as Straight Runs from June through August.
