    Anyone have any guineafowl that would go with my chickens? I only need 1 or 2 that will protect my hens from predators. Thanks! Chickenman8

    Does anyone have any pictures of what they look like?

    Good luck. I've lost more guinea to predators than I have chickens. [​IMG]

    I am not sure about guineas. Will they be laying soon if they were born in june or are they already laying? Thanks! Where at in NW ohio are you?

    I am not to sure of the specifics as I just hatched these. They were suprise eggs from a neighbor. The info I found online said that they are fully mature at 7 months and that is when they will start to lay. I live in Edon, OH, the very NW corner of the state.

    Thanks! Let me think about it and what would be the lowest price you would take for two of them? Chickenman8
