Hello Fellow Ontarioians

I was wondering if anyone had any ideas where I could get a few dozen guinea fowl for my property. I can't find many breeders for Ontario or beyond. Ticks are starting to make their appearance and I want to get something here going that will control them. Hopefully breed them as well.

Any info is greatly appreciated

I am in the Niagara area and there are quite a few people keeping them around here. They are often advertised on Kijiji, check your local Kijiji.

I've been keeping an eye on the Kingston, Brockville and Ottawa region but not a lot of prospects that I'm finding. A few looking to get rid of males, which would work short term but I'd like to start breeding them. Not even that many breeders listed in the area. One around Picton who I contacted but they are out for the season. I'll keep my eyes open

If you haven't already found some, the trails end farmers market outside of London on Saturday mornings often have them. I am not sure though if the avain influenza thing has shut them down. there were guinea hens for sale there about a month ago. I thought about buying them but didn't (kick ,Kick, kick! ouch) if you are still interested, I can try to contact some bird fancier friends of mine to see if they know anyone
