    I have seen them for about $10 for adults in my area and about $5 for babies. I guess it depends on where you are and how bad you want them [​IMG] I personally wouldnt pay that much, not when I could get 25 babies for the price of a few adults from a hatchery.

    Most keets depending on the breed, are in the $5-$6 range each.

    Here in Colorado guineas produced this year are about 10 dollars. Next spring guineas held over winter will be much closer to 15. I dont think they often go for 25 but you shouold chek the market where you are.

    Oh if you were closer to me, I have a dozen that I would gladly sell at $25 each. I sell keets for $5 and those around 4 months old for $8. I have no problem getting rid of them, so maybe I should raise my prices.
     
  6. The most I paid was 12 bucks for a Guinea. It was a Pied strange color and I just really wanted it.

    I sell off my 8 week old s (the males) for 5 to 7 bucks depending on their color and health.

    I would not go with an adult Guinea unless you have a good number of them to teach them the ropes about

    your place.

    Quote:ya i think its a little to much too. But its just i don't know where else to get them?? Besides the auction, they seem to go quite a bit less there.

    I sold my new keets for $5 each and then after a few weeks they went to $7 each (they eat like pigs when not free ranging) and if someone bought five, I gave them the sixth one free.

    You didn't mention what variety of guineas is for sale. That can make a difference. Perhaps that is a reasonable price for the more rare varieties but I would say it's high for Pearls.

    God Bless,

    Around here they start at $3 for just hatched keets and go up to about $10 each as adults.
