    I may be adding 3 EEs, 1 BO, and 1 male purple guinea to my flock tomorrow. i will post pics when/if i get them! it just depends on if the owner will take $20 bucks for them sence they are all mutts and not pure breds like she thinks. I do know that chickens can be expensive but my dad wont pay more than $20 bucks for them so i hope she excepts our offer! [​IMG]

    Do not put them together with your flock if you get them. They need to be put in quarantine and observed for any possible illnesses for at least 30 days. Check for external parasites like lice and mites and treat them if necessary. Putting them together with your existing flock right away calls for trouble, even the new birds might look healthy. ALWAYS ALWAYS quarantine new birds for a minimum of 30 days.
    Good luck.
