Information: 

  

This is a family of insect and seed-eating, ground-nesting birds that resemble partridges, but with featherless heads, though both members of the genus Guttera have a distinctive black crest, and the Vulturine Guineafowl has a downy brown patch on the nape. Most species of guineafowl have a dark grey or blackish plumage with dense white spots, but both members of the genus Agelastes lack the spots (as do some domestic variants of the Helmeted Guineafowl). While several species are relatively well known, the Plumed Guineafowl and the two members of the genus Agelastes remain relatively poorly known.
The species for which the information is known are normally monogamous, mating for life. However, occasional bigamy has been recorded for the Helmeted Guineafowl. All guineafowl are social, and typically occur in small groups. If a guinea fowl's mate were to die, it would mourn for several weeks before choosing a new one.
They are large birds which measure from 40-71 cm in length, and weigh 700-1600 g.
The Helmeted and Vulturine Guineafowl generally occur in open or semi-open habitats such as savanna or semi-deserts, while the remaining species of guineafowl mainly occur in forests.
The Helmeted Guineafowl has been domesticated and introduced outside its natural range, for example in southern France (where they are known as Pintade), the West Indies, and the United States. Guineafowl that are kept in the United States are often kept for meat, but their eggs are edible as well. Guineafowl can be acquired at any feed store or from guineafowl hatcheries. It should be noted before buying guineafowl that they can fly very long distances, and do not do well in cold tempatures.
Guinea fowl are sometimes used to control ticks.
