    I can't say that I've seen a crested guinea. Maybe somebody can chime in here and enlighten us. [​IMG]

    Pretty rare in the US so very expensive.

    They have a down side, they are very sensitive to cold. An article I read years ago explained the set up one person had for raising them. They actually had heat tubes buried in the dirt to provide them warmth.
