We decided to get guineas within a couple days of moving to Virginia. The ticks at our place are horrible! My dogs had at least a dozen ticks on them after being outside for only a few minutes. We have cut back some of brush, but guineas were a no-brainer. Anyway, I don't know anything about guinea colors and it really doesn't matter, but I wouldn't mind finding out what they are. We ordered the assortment from McMurray and they hatched on June 15th.
