I have a chicken flock and quail flock and I have one guinea that we rescued as a sole survivor when a friend's flock was attacked by a predator. She is just part of my chicken flock and she is the funniest bird I have. She referees the rooster fights and comes and knocks on my front door and buckwheats at me to bring treats and such things. I REALLY want more of these personable birds and the noise is no issue and our rural neighbors were disappointed when I only had one.... SO for my question.... I have not been able to find anyone local to me North Mississippi/West TN that is selling hatching eggs. The hatcheries need me to order 30 keets which is more than I want. Shipped Eggs are a risk. Is it just that it is too early in the season for folks around me to have hatching eggs? When should I start to see availability? How can I find local eggs (already watching Craigslist)? I suspect it is too early. I have not yet seen a Guinea egg from my girl...not that it would be fertile anyway since I have no guinea guy!! I have not seen a rooster brave enough to approach that little firebrand either for a weird cross. So how do I find me some hatching eggs or even a smaller number of keets?
