    Hi! I have two and a half guinea hens and two sheep on roughly an acre in the Eastern Panhandle of West Virginia. (One guinea hen, Sergeant Fury, is half blind and needs to be confined so that the other two don't kill her.) I have had awful luck with French Guinea fowl over the last three years and am looking for new, hardier guinea keets; also looking for Silkie ducklings!

    Welcome to Backyard chickens, hope Sergeant Fury, continues to do well. I have heard guineas can be ruthless. You have been given great links - hope you can find what you are searching for.
