    My son's just got back from a secret trip to a friends farm with two pearl guinea hens for me!! I've been talking about getting some and have eggs hatching. they heard me and asked their buddy's if anyone had any grown ones for sale. sure enough, they got 'em and i can also get two more tomorrow if i want them too!! They only had the two they could get down from the barn rafters, so in the daylight, they'll catch me two more.
    I was so surprised...never thought i'd get these and never thought my boys would be so creative - they are special guys to me!!

    The more the merrier for guineas. Get 4.

    How wonderful. How old are your boys? I have 2 boys myself and trust me--the last thing they would ever do is get me another bird!

    i have two boys of my own: 16 & 18 and two foster boys :18 & 18. They all have farm-type jobs and have gotten used to Mom's obsessive chicken behavior...which is now branching out to turkeys and guinneas!!
    They usually can't keep a secret between the four of them for long at all, so getting me the guinnes was a delight...they were so proud of themselves. The story of how they got the hens from the barn out of their roosts was pretty funny too.
