I noticed a report that a school in Fremont County, Wyoming, on or near the Shoshone Reservation, has a problem with rattlesnakes migrating near the premises. There's a long list of precautions taken by the School Board and local authorities to keep children safe. One of them is:
After speaking with a biologist with the Game and Fish, the district is looking into the feasibility of having a Guinea Fowl farm in the affected area.
I did a quick internet search to find out what guinea fowl had to do with snakes. Some references claimed that the former kill the latter, or at least drive them away. Others spoke disdainfully of guinea fowl ignoring snakes, even going so far as to let them hang out in their warm coops.
Can anyone tell me - and perhaps other interested readers - how guinea fowl can/may/will help with a snake infestation? Please let us know in Comments.
