The Upper East Regional Organizer of the Poultry Farmers Association, Issaaka Mohammed, has called on graduates and youth in the region to consider taking up guinea fowl farming as an alternative source of livelihood.

According to him, guinea fowl farming offers numerous benefits due to its lucrative nature, minimal demand for attention, and its ability to adapt to varied environmental conditions. 

With a minimum start-up capital of GH500, the organizer said individuals can establish a thriving guinea fowl business. He revealed this during his interview on A1 Radio’s News Link.

According to him,” there is an available market for guinea fowls, and it starts from the first stage of production to the end, in that one can hatch them, breed them to some level, and then sell them to another; that person can also groom them to another level and sell them off, and that is how the market circulates”.

“Guinea fowls are not like chickens, where you will look at seasonal times where you sell them during Christmas; guinea fowls at all times have a market,” he added.

Mr. Mohammed noted that guinea fowls are wild birds and consume a lot, but the availability of markets for them makes it quite easy for people to buy the young ones based on their capacity, breed them to a certain stage, and sell them off.

This, he noted, does not add an unnecessary burden to the farmer, and it is important that young graduates and other professionals in the region take advantage of the business.
