    Hi!
    I'm new to this site, but also to raising chickens and guineas. [​IMG] This is our first time ever having chickens.

    We have 9 Pearl guineas, that are about 5 weeks old now. [​IMG] We also have 9 more guineas, 5 royal purples, 3 pearls, and 1 lavender that we hatched from their eggs. We have never hatched eggs before, and we had put 14 eggs in the incubator, and had 9 hatch. [​IMG] They now about a week old.

    Then we have two buff Silkies, who we named Tweety and Minnie, who are so friendly. [​IMG] they are 6 weeks old. Then we just got 6 more silkies, 2 blacks, 2 blues, and 2 splash, that are around 2 weeks old. We love all of them! [​IMG]

    Quote:Thanks to both of you! [​IMG] Oh, We already had the 9 hatched about a week ago... We were so happy about it, because we weren't sure if they would hatch since it was our first time. [​IMG] Good luck with breeding your frizzle! [​IMG]
