Find Your Fowl Flock Podcast

In this episode of Mother Earth News and Friends, Cindy Gibson of Guinea Fowl International presents at the Belton, Texas Mother Earth News Fair about establishing and caring for your poultry. She shares the benefits and disadvantages of raising mixed flocks, as well as the pros and cons of several types of birds, with an emphasis on guinea fowl.

Cindy Gibson is president of Guinea Fowl International, an organization founded to support responsible guinea-keeping and to educate on the care and habits of guinea fowl. She first acquired guineas to help combat a grasshopper infestation on her Texas ranch, and now keeps more than 100 guinea fowl (along with her chickens, ducks, and grazing animals). She helps new guinea-keepers, and frequently speaks to groups about the why-and-how to incorporate guinea-keeping into a landscape or farm. In particular, she helps dispel some of the myths and misinformation that has led some to unsuccessful attempts at guinea-keeping.
