    After hunting for quite a while for someone local, with no luck.. I was about to suck it up and place an order from cackle hatchery... Ended up walking into TSC and seeing an ad on their board for guineas.. Sat we'll have 10 new additions! I haven't had guineas yet, but we do have ducks/chickens and peafowl. I've been wanting guineas for the last year so I am thrilled.

    Well I added 11 yesterday! I had only wanted the 10, but the person I got them from threw in an extra for me incase of any losses. The oldest are a week old, and the youngest two are day olds as he staggered his hatches. Everyone is doing great though, and zooming around their brooding pen. I think the 11 of them ate more in one night then the 25 chicks I had in the brooder a few weeks ago did lol.
