    Hello all. I'm Marcy I live in Sacramento CA area and am looking for guinea breeders in the area. I am looking to buy guineas this year as my last ones got picked off by something this past fall.
    Going to do many things different. Going to try & coop train them so they r not out in the "wild" all night. Suggestions welcome. Thank you

    Hi Marcy, I'm sorry I don't know anything about guineas but, if you go to "Other Backyard Poultry" forum above, you will find threads regarding guineas - the folks there should be able to answer your questions. Welcome to the flock

    Hi :welcome Marcy

    Glad you could join the flock! I too have never kept guineas but the learnng centre has a new section on other backyard poultry including guineas https://www.backyardchickens.com/a/other-backyard-poultry-ducks-quail-turkeys-geese-etc Definatly drop by the guinea section of the forum as drumstick suggested for all the expert keepers.

    There is also the buy sell trade section you could take a look at for any available https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/67/buy-sell-trade

    Wishing you the very best and hope you enjoy BYC :frow
