When studying dynamics of body height and development of axial and peripheral departments of a skeleton of guinea fowls it is established that these processes happen in close interrelation with body height of alive weight and a skeleton of guinea fowls in general. At guinea fowls males in development after the birth the relative mass of an axial skeleton to the absolute mass of a skeleton decreases - from 27,17% (at daily age) to 26,19% (at the age of 365 days) while at guinea fowls females this indicator increases - from 25,46% (at daily age) to 29,08% (at the age of 365 days). On a similar index of a peripheral skeleton the inverse picture is observed. It is bound to egg efficiency at guinea fowls females (the axial department of a skeleton grows more intensively) and to meat efficiency at tsesarey-males (the peripheral department of a skeleton grows more intensively).
