    What state are you in, guineaguy? Eggs may be harder to find than adults. Check Craig's List and ebay though.

    I'm hoping to begin hatching Chocolates this coming spring. I'd love to find a Chocolate male somewhere "close" to North GA, like SC or TN...I have three beautiful Chocolate females, and I think they're dark (or darker), but I don't have much to compare them to. They are lovely, though. :). One has cream primary flight feathers which would knock her out of being a show guinea, but honestly, I think those feathers make her prettier. My show career ends before it even starts LOL. The other two are flawless as far as I can tell, but I have zero intention of ever getting into showing birds of any kind.

    I GOTTA get good pictures!!
