    Description:
    This listing is for 18+ guinea fowl eggs. I will include extras if I'm able to get them. These will be assorted color eggs from my mixed flock including a gorgeous coral blue male and pinto (highly pied) male in with one porcelain, one lavendar, and two slate females. As you can see in the pictures they are very nice looking colors. Colors you may hatch are pied, pinto, coral blue, lavendar, slate, and I even hatched one pearl gray. Other colors are possible, as I haven't hatched many this year. I have included pictures of of my adults from keets to now and pictures of keets that I have hatched from them.


    Guineas are nervous birds by nature and do not get overly tame, however they are great for reducing ticks and other bugs since that is a large part of their diet when they are ranging. They do need to be secured at night to protect them from predators. Guineas can be very noisy and are great "watchdogs" but are not good if you have close neighbors that do not like guineas. I'm happy to answer any questions, just send me a PM. [​IMG]


    They will be shipped by USPS Priority Mail, which typically takes 2-3 days. I will not be responsible for any accidents in the mail since I cannot control what happens when they leave. I will ship within continental US only, excluding HI, AK. If your state has restrictions on receiving shipped eggs, please contact me prior to buying. I will individually wrap each egg and package with care. I have very good feedback on my packaging. I will mark the box as fragile, unless requested otherwise.

    I don't wash the eggs, but I wipe loose dirt off of the dirty eggs.

    Since I cannot control the hens’ laying, if they should slow down, and I am unable to collect the minimum by the shipping date, the buyer would have the option to cancel order or wait for the additional eggs. I don't anticipate any issues with getting the number of eggs listed based on the rate of laying.


    Thanks for looking! [​IMG]

    @kadizkids - Yes, I find guineas nice to have around too! I prefer to keep a small flock due to noice, but they are quite helpful with reducing bugs.

    @AugeredIn - Not yet.

    Please remember to PM with questions since this is an auction - it helps keep the replies shorter to make it easier for others to see if any bids have been placed. Answering questions can become lengthy sometimes.

    I have updated the auction to 18+ eggs. It looks like I will have around 20 eggs available. Auction closes in less than a day at 5:30pm tomorrow. [​IMG]
