I am new to Guineas but I got them to keep the ticks off our dogs. I have a large breeding kennel and spend a fourtune of tick spray. This year I though I would try these guys. My adults I got about 4 months ago and just started turning them lose to free range. So far so good they stay in the orchard. But what color are they? and how do I sex them? I found one of them making a nest in the goat pen (I do not have goats anymore), maybe not a next but there are 4 eggs. I have been collecting and eating the eggs when they were in the chicken coop. Her is the one that might be a male. any thoughts on sex or color? These are my babies in the brooder. They are 4 weeks old today and they are lavendar. I think i got 2 pied's that squeaked in the bunch tho. I am learning so much from this forum, this place is great!
