BREED DETAILSVOLTURINE GUINEA FOWL -  (Acryllium vulturinum) 
These birds have a bright blue body with black and whit streaks and small white dots on the back feathers. They have a "horny" helmet on top of their naked heads. The head region is bright with blue, red, and yellow. The eyes are red and the beak is short and black. There is a band of tiny brown feathers on the back of its head. The males and females look very similar and are difficult to distinguish. Vulturine Guineafowl reach sexual maturity at the age of 2 and can produce up to 40 eggs in just one breeding season! They are laid in 3 different clutches, but still.Multiple females, or hens, might take responsibility to lay and incubate the eggs. This species eggs are particularly strong and thick, so even the unhatched chick has a difficult time breaking out of its shell. Once it has, however, the bird is strong enough to fly in just a few days. In some parts of the world, they are called royal fowl because of how beautiful they look.Size : 50.8 to 52.8 cm (20 to 24 in.) in lengthDiet: These birds will feed on seeds, roots, tubers, grubs, rodents, small reptiles and insects.
