As title says, do they eat leeches? I'm keen to get a few and if they do then this will help me to convince my hubby that these funny looking birds are just what we need.

I think they probably do, but chickens probably would too if they saw them.

I had guineas for a year or two but I don't have leeches! BUT they are fantastic insect eaters and really cut the locust infestations on our place really noticeably when we had them.
