Wow, I love guineas at this age. I have a few of my own roaming around. :)
What colors do you have? We had a bunch growin up off & on, but haven't had any in 6 years at the new farm. I am seriously contemplating it now.

I have Pearled, Pied, and Lavender. :)

Guineas are great for getting rid of bugs such as ticks, so if you have a lot of ticks normally I would highly suggest getting some guineas.
But, as you should remember, they are noisy creatures. I have never met a guinea that wasn't almost always making some sort of noise.. So be prepared to deal with LOTS of noise. :)
Also, in my experience they are not very good mothers. This is the first year that I haven't taken away their babies. Normally if I don't take away their babies they all get eaten by something. But this year the WHOLE flock is looking over the keets. It's working pretty good too, because I wasn't even able to get close enough to grab 'em.
