    Hi, let me introduce myself, I am a Guinea hen mom and proud of it. She is a 13 years old lavender pearl and the joy of my yard. I am looking forward to a new coop in the spring and getting some chickens and a few more guineas. I am new with chickens and welcome any advice for a newbie chicken mom.

    So glad you could join our community!

    Definitely stop by our learning center for all kinds of tips and hints on keeping your flock. And of course our Guinea section. Kelsie has left you with both of these links.

    Great to have you aboard and welcome to our flock!

    Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to our flock. Definitely post on our Guinea link that Kelsie2290 left with you, and take advantage of our guinea experts there. As far as getting chickens goes, Murray McMurray has an excellent "chick selector" tool at https://www.mcmurrayhatchery.com/chick_selector.html to help you determine which breed would be best for you. Just be sure and click on "show more characteristics." Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Good luck with your flock.
