    Hello I am a new egg here and was wondering if anyone buys Guineas this time of the year . My husband is new to Guineas and ended up with ( Raised ) some really beautiful ones . He has Royal Purple , Pearl , white and some lite purple guineas . Their ages are from 8 months to six weeks , he has about 75 total . We would like to sell them but don't have an idea where or how to . They will be super cheap as we are not in the business of selling . All are very healthy . Any suggestions ??

    Thank you ,

    [​IMG] List them on the BUY/SELL auction here on BYC. Also you can list for free on Craigslist on the internet. When I have extra roos or other chickens, I make fliers and post at local stores, gas stations, convenience stores. [​IMG]

    I just sold 17 guineas two weeks ago and had another person ask me about them right away, so I think you might be able to sell them. I put mine on craigslist.

    Thank you so much for the quick replies ! I had thought of listing on BYC but didn't want to ship but would if necessary . I hadn't even thought of CraigsList so will get busy and try that first .

    Many thanks again ,

    People buy guineas all year round. Just like chickens. CL is likely your best bet.

    I need some more guineas so bad! Usually I only try to buy eggs but if you guys still have some guineas avalible, let me know and I MAY consider getting some. I would have to have them shipped though. Thanks!

    My guineas were adorable, I just couldn't take that their wandering pattern would take them past my neighbors houses at very early hours. Thankfully they went to another home that has lots and lots of room for them and no neighbors! [​IMG]

    I'm looking to buy guineas right now. I will be heading up to the auctions in hope of finding some. I only have 4 grown birds (two pieds,1 peral, 1 lavender) and two whites, and 1 buff white color babies.
