    I am looking for Guinea Keets that aren't $5 each with a 30 minimum. I would like to start out with 8-10 or more if the price is right. If anyone can help me out, I would greatly appreciate it. I need to decrease the bug population.

    When I saw Middletown I thought you were from PA. I thought of JM Hatchery but it will still work for you.
    25 minimum now, 15 minimum after Apr 1. cause of body temp to keep each other warm.
    $3.50 ea. for 25.
    Never bought keets from them, I just knew they had them.
    I did get their Freedom Ranger chicks and was thrilled = big, robust birds, good rugged foragers.
    Others will chime in but that's my 2 cents worth.

    here's their link

    I wonder if you can order now for shipment in April. I will have to call them and ask. Most hatcheries are booking dates to ship and many are booked through June. I was hoping to have them early spring and keep them indoors for 8 weeks.

    Thanks!

    They keep their site very up to date so I'm sure you can order now for that April.
    Let me know if that's not true.
    I will definitely get another batch of their birds.

    Are you in Middletown Ohio? If so, I might be able to help you. I have a male and two female pearl guineas and am planning on incubating their eggs when they start laying again so that I can add a couple more. I will hopefully get more than two to hatch though. PM me if you are in Ohio.
