Guinea Hen, Whole
Guinea hen humanely raised on a small farm in California, with no added antibiotics or growth stimulants. Cage-free conditions and a wholesome grain diet contribute to the high quality and great flavor of these birds, which are air chilled for best flavor and texture. The guinea hen is somewhere between a pheasant and chicken; darker, leaner and slightly more delicious than either.

Cooking & Serving
Cooking Methods: Roast, Braise, Poach, Stew, Barbecue
Cooking Tips: Guinea hen can be cooked just like chicken, although it has a thinner, leaner skin. A rubdown with butter, duck fat, or a few strips of bacon will add flavor and keep the bird moist. Try adding shallots, citrus, garlic, and/or herbs to the cavity before roasting. Just like chicken, guinea hen should reach a finished temperature of 165 degrees F.
