    I found the nicest people today off Craigslist! They sold us 2 Bourbon Red turkey eggs, 5 Guinea eggs and 12 Duck eggs (5 buff Indian Runner) to hatch at the school for $7.00!!! We are so excited! We have never incubated duck eggs well I guess for that matter Guinea eggs, Yes Mom's the one that got tricked on Ebay thought she bought "extra large" guinea eggs and they hatched out as Turkeys LOL. We still love our Turkey Tom aka Qurkey
    Is there really a extra large guinea?
    They where so nice! I hope to deal with them again in the future.

    My guineas are pretty big *and dumb! I think there is a difference between the french guinea and the standard guinea but I am not sure about that at all. Maybe you could look at feathersite.com. He usually has a lot of great info there. I am just to lazy to look right now LOL!
    Great buy on the eggs! Good luck with them!!!! [​IMG]

    I will look it up, I want to see!! I think that would be neat! We looked up big and extra large. Jumbo was not one we thought of. The people we got the eggs from said extra large, I guess even they didnt know what they had LOL
    Thanks for the heads up on the "extra large" guineas!
