Helmeted Guineafowl

Numida meleagris

Guineafowl are relatives of chickens, pheasants and grouse. There are 10 species. Domestic guineafowl are descended from this species.



Size: 53 - 63cm
Weight: 1 - 1.5kg



Helmeted guinea fowl are found in most habitats of Africa, excluding desert and heavily forested regions.



These birds have a varied diet, including seeds, berries, insects and even spiders!



They nest in small cavities in the ground usually chosen next to bushes for protection. They can lay between 12 and 15 eggs, which are incubated for 27 days.



Guineafowl are not believed to be endangered and have been introduced to many places including Portugal, the USA and New Zealand.
