    I can't help with guineas. Have you tried craigslist locally?
    My penedesenca roosters spot the hawks a long way off, send the girls for cover, stand to face the hawk and if the hawk is fearless enough to swoop the roosters have so far kicked their butt.

    There are a couple Guinea Fowl websites that have breeders lists that sell locally or maybe even just ship you a few keets with a heat pack or something, you can do a google search to find the lists and then check to see if anything is listed for your area.

    Good luck!
