Guineafowl

Guineafowl (alternatively called "pet speckled hens" or "original fowl") are small, plump terrestrial birds with long tails and short legs.

Males have a mixture of iridescent black, brown, buff and white plumage. Females are overall sandy brown with a light-barred underside. Both sexes have a downy texture to their feathering, and 17 species have been recorded in Colombia.

In the New World quail (Odontophoridae), males have a misleading pattern of sexual dimorphism. Males often have ornamental plumes on the back of their heads, which are displayed during courtship. Males fight one another for the females to win mating rights.

They measure around 30 cm (12 in) long, including its relatively long tail. The guineafowl is identifiable by its colourful facial feathers and its brown, pink, blue and grey plumage. Round brightly coloured red spots decorate the wings while the tail is black with white barring; in flight, they show a flash of bright pink from their brighter primary feathers underwing

The scientific name for guineafowl (Numididae) is derived from "Guine" (their type genus) and the Latin " avis ", meaning bird. Guineafowl meat is drier and leaner than chicken meat, with a gamey flavour. It has become more popular in recent years, as a more healthy alternative to other types of poultry. Guineafowl eggs are approximately 40% richer than chicken eggs, and more easily digested by people with compromised immune systems.

The helmeted guineafowl (Numida meleagris) lives in small groups of up to 30 or 40 birds. Although they are not very aggressive, the males often fight each other for food and for mates. The female lays four to eight eggs at one time in a shallow, sometimes unlined, scrape nest on the ground.
