    Man am I mad at myself !!!! I have been wanting Guinea Hens for a while and have studied about them etc.

    Well I was at the Windsor Fair in Maine today and someone was selling Guinea Keets 6 for $15.00 !

    Well I didn't got there expecting to buy any today and decided against getting them. I then proceeded to kick myself in the butt the whole way home !

    Oh Well live and learn.

    PS. The poultry show grand champion was an absolutely gorgeous bantam game fowl rooster. I'll post a pick of it in a bit.

    I really started rethinking my getting guineas last week during my last chemo recovery phase!!!! [​IMG] I didn't actually realize how dang loud they can get when they are "vocalizing"!!!!! I live in a small subdivision out in the country. I think that is the only reason the police haven't been to my house about the noise yet!!

    They are funny! They are fantastic when it comes to bugs. They are NOSIY!!


    Think long and hard about Guineas!

    Quote:Thanks for the advice. The noise I think is what I am looking for. My friend has them and he says they are the greatest watchdogs ever. The noise issue has definitely got to be considered .
