    Check out the Learning Center on the bar near the top of the page. There are several articles on guineas in the Other Fowl section. If you still have questions feel free to ask. Congratulations on your new babies![​IMG]

    That brings back memories of when mine were little poof balls!
    Advice #1: you'll need a bigger brooder sooner than you think! They grow fast!

    They look to be doing great. I raised my first guineas this year and they do grow fast
