Guinea fowl have such thick hard shells I have never deliberately put it there for them, they roost with the chooks and eat their food. My hubby ran over a guinea fowl egg in the grass and it didn't break.

Thanks Olivia N. The guineas get the shell grit when they eat their food.

I use all egg shells. Quail included. Just to think of the egg shells I have thrown away. What a waste I made. If I had only known. I thought I had to buy the grit.

Yes me too I did not think to 'make my own' but that's why APF is so important so we can share all the ideas to everyone

From what I've read it's not as common but they can get fleas.

But take that with a grain of salt as I've no personal experience yet, I'm just trying to learn. :)
