Guinea fowl

This was originally an African game bird of the numididae family and classed as a game bird; today it"s farmed and classed as poultry. Their flesh is darker, and has a slightly stronger flavour than chicken, and guinea fowl can be used for all chicken and pheasant recipes.

Guinea fowl were a delicacy in ancient Rome, but were farmed after the 1st century AD.
