    Ok DH has decided that since "I" have chickens he wants Guinea's. So is it better to start them in the spring or fall, I told him spring since he will need to build their coop, and get everything ready.

    Spring. That way you can raise them and once they hit the age they can go out it will be nice and warm.

    Good luck.

    Edited to say I see you're in Florida. It stays nice and warm there year round, correct?
