I just got 4 guinea chicks. Any and all advice is welcome.

  Check out the Learning Center on the bar near the top of the page. There are several articles on guineas in the Other Fowl section. If you still have questions feel free to ask. Congratulations on your new babies!:D

That brings back memories of when mine were little poof balls!
Advice #1: you'll need a bigger brooder sooner than you think! They grow fast!

Japanese, OEG, Sebright, Brahmn, d'Uccle, and EE bantams; and RIR, BR, and EEs, Golden Penciled Hamburg, EEs, Anconas, Bielefelders, Wheaten Marans, Speckled Sussex, and a surprise variety of bantams with breeds tbd!

 

16 guineas and 2 turkeys to round out the flock

 

Another victim of poultry math. Aiming for a "designer" flock and egg basket :)

They look to be doing great. I raised my first guineas this year and they do grow fast

I love when they lay like that.
