Can guinea hens eat watermelon?

One search term that brought a reader to this site.

Answer: Yes.

Guineas eat grass, sweet peas, vines, grasshoppers, lizards, lettuce, chicken scratch, corn, zucchini, etc.  Their preference is for fresh green things. They are not all that crazy about fruit, from what I’m seeing, but they did pretty well with a chunk of watermelon last week. The banties, on the other hand, polished the watermelon rinds clean.
