    I agree, keets will bring anywhere from $2 to $5 here, depending on the color.

    Thank you. I have a lady that wants some, and I have no clue!!! There was a feed store here that I heard was selling them for $7.00! I thought that was high, so I decided to investigate!!![​IMG] They must have been older. I was told that no one around here has them.[​IMG]

    I usually dont sell mine till they are a couple weeks old, and I get 5 a piece for them. Mine are mixed pearl, pied, and lavenders.

    I just bought several adult females (I hope) for 15 each. I know that most of them are females, but I get mixed up about which ones I have heard before and so on. The feed stores get 7.00 each here in Colorado. I am hoping to hatch some I thought I would sell them for 4-5 each.

    They are crazy animals I hope my neighbors dont hate me. The have really been sounding off lately.

    I have yet to find eggs, but I dont think they are laying yet.

    Quote:Mine are always hiding the nest. We found one yesterday with 14 eggs! They are crazy! We brought home a goat today, and they went nuts!!! The guinea and the peacocks all merged on the goat just out of reach and squacked and carried on! It was so funny seeing them all in a line voicing their dismay!!!
