Last summer I bought 6 guineas and after having them penned for 2 months I set them free and they went into the wild blue yonder. I since have learned I needed to raise them on my place to keep them so I found a fellow that was hatching them and bought 7. I am just so excited. They said the father was a laventure color and the hens were pearl and white. so that is why they are differnt colors. They are so cute.
