    I never was tempted by guineas, but now that the neighbors behind me have them, I really don't understand wanting them. I have to shoo them out of my yard several times a day. They are very loud, and… I really would like to know the attraction to them. Could either of you tell me?
    It must really hurt to have duck eggs coming out of your ears. :hugs So sorry for your pain.

    Besides superior tick control I can see no benefit to them. Although I've heard they are good to eat.

    I'm in!
    I have eggs set to hatch May 6-8. Langshan, Columbian Wyandottes, and barnyard mixes.
    I think this will be it for me for a while unless a hen goes broody. Have to keep chicken & garden chores to a minimum with fishing season started and camping on the horizon. (This morning we were at 98 chickens and a turkey. Sold 3 Silkies! Bought 6 poults. 95 chickens and 7 turkeys tonight. About 45 chicken eggs and 1 goose egg in the bators- someone stop me!!!)
    :bow
