    Hi,

    I ordered 15 pearl guineas and received 16 keets, one was white with a touch of gray. They are now 4 weeks old and the white one has changed color some - can you tell by teh photo what kind it is?

    Thank you for help figuring my guinea. The "pearling" is starting to show more. He/she will be an attractive Lavender Guinea.

    Mrs. Fluffy Puffy,

    I am wondering how long our lavender will last around here - so many hawks.

    My family assures me I am creating bad karma by referring to this guinea affectionately as little hawk bait . . .

    Quote:Hawks, Owls, anything will carry away a guinea. As long as they have a safe coop to come back to at night and you don't allow them to roost in the tree tops you'll do fine. I moved mine to so many different coops they never knew which coop to go to. My new batch of guineas I raised them in the coop they're going to be in from day one so I don't have the problem I had with the other guineas.
