This plump, medium-sized, short-tailed bird has a partially featherless head and neck and a crest or “helmet” on top of the skull. Omnivorous, it feeds on small animals, seeds, berries, insects and greenery. The female lays between 12 and 15 eggs whose incubation lasts 23 or 24 days. Both parents participate in the breeding of the guinea fowls and their longevity is 10 years. Guinea fowls are raised for their meat and this practice is called méléagriculture.
