Guineafowl are African birds that have a largely feathered head and neck, with blue or whitish skin. The plumage is usually blackish gray with white spots. The female is similar to the male, but female is smaller. They are monogamous, matching for life and they nest in the land.
Its food is omnivorous and varied, consisting of seeds of cereals, fruits, snails, earthworms, insects and larvae of soil insects.
Guineafowl are social birds, they form flocks that sometimes reach a thousand individuals. When these groups move, they travel several kilometers during the day and when the night comes they go up to the trees to sleep, which they also do in case of danger; in these cases, they are able to run at high speed.
