    Does anyone happen to have guineas in North Alabama? I know nothing about them and would like to find someone locally. It seems as if guineas would be a perfect match for me and the kids!!!

    I am in NE MS in Tupelo. I have a bunch of guinea keets or I would sell a couple of grown ones.

    I was looking for a few guineas. I am a little concerned about the noise level now. I live in a neighborhood. I have a large garden (120' x 60') that has a 20' high privacy net around most of it. There is 40 feet that only has a 4-5' high net/fence. I would love to have them on bug patrol![​IMG]

    Guineas are very noisy even when they are small. If you had a few acres the noise probably wouldn't bother anyone. Ducks are decent for bug control and the males are not noisy at all.

    I only have .8 of an acre but I do have all back yards butting up to the back yard. Ducks..... Hmmm. They sure are cute when they are young. I just do not want them to fly away!

    Guineas can fly too.
