So, all orders from Flint River Guinea are subject to the following terms and conditions, and any purchaser of keets from Flint River Guinea agrees to these terms and conditions as a prerequisite of ordering.

: If hatching eggs are shipped out west we will notify you of the additional postage cost. It is expensive to ship out west. The customer will be required to pay the difference in the ship rate. 

Cancellation

If you choose to cancel your order we will issue you a gift certificate to be used on a future purchase. We DO NOT do money back refunds. If you need to cancel your order, please email us the reason for your cancellation. It is difficult to precisely predict laying rates, fertility rates, and hatch rates. We do our best to accurately estimate delivery dates, but it is only an estimate, and we can be wrong. If Flint River Guinea cannot fill your order within 3 weeks of your estimated shipping date, a full refund will be issued if requested.

Refunds and Returns

No refunds or returns on guinea keets or hatching eggs. If keets are shipped and DOA, then follow instructions above for reimbursement.

Shipping is non-refundable. 

Hatchery Tours:

We’d love to spend time with you at the hatchery and show you our beautiful guineas, but we take biosecurity very seriously, and hatchery tours can expose our flocks to disease transmission. We simply can not take that risk, so we don't schedule hatchery tours or the pickup of orders at the hatchery. Orders can be picked up at the B and B Feed Store 833 Spring Creek Rd. Thomaston, Ga. 30286 by appointment only.

Minimum Order:

15 Keet minimum order is required for shipping and there is no minimum order for pick up. Please keep in mind that guinea fowl do better in groups. They are a social bird.

Keets are sold as straight run (unsexed) and Hatchery Choice colors (we select the colors for you). 

Cancellation:

If you choose to cancel your order we will issue you a gift certificate to be used on a future purchase. We DO NOT do money back refunds. If you need to cancel your order, please email us the reason for your cancellation. It is difficult to precisely predict laying rates, fertility rates, and hatch rates. We do our best to accurately estimate delivery dates, but it is only an estimate, and we can be wrong. If Flint River Guinea cannot fill your order within 3 weeks of your estimated shipping date, a full refund will be issued if requested. 

Shipping:

We only ship to the lower 48 states. Orders are usually shipped out on a Monday or a Tuesday via USPS. Shipping rate is flat rate pricing.  We ship “Priority Mail Express.” Shipping rate will be calculated at checkout. We will notify you a week prior to shipping and again when we ship with your tracking number. “Priority Mail Express” is the fastest mail service offered by the post office. It provides a 1 day or 2 day Priority Mail Express delivery. Note: a full postage refund will be paid only if the shipment is not delivered or delivery attempted within 3 days. The customer should expect a 2-3 day delivery standard. This is the USPS policy on live day old birds. 
Guinea Keets will be held at your local post office for pickup. The Post Office will call you when they arrive. Please pick your keets up within 2 hours of arrival at your local Post Office. 

Payment:

Payment is required when the order is placed. We will give you an estimated delivery date. We ask that you be flexible up to 3 weeks if necessary.

Guinea Keet Care:

We send a Guinea Keet Care Guide with each order. We do not recommend raising your keets any other way than what we suggested in the Care Guide. Something that we changed this year is we recommend raising your keets on 1/2 hardware cloth. Large flake pine shavings can be used under the wire about three inches below to catch the droppings. Clean your brooder often. Guinea Keets are susceptible to Coccidiosis. Feeding your keets a medicated chick starter that contains Amprollium will reduce the chance of an outbreak. Always provide fresh clean water and the recommended food. Make sure the heat lamp was intended for poultry use.

Similar colors of Guineas are housed together and others are kept separate. We are able to hatch out every color of Keet. We are currently working on building additional enclosures.
