5ish week old keet cannot walk
Featured Stories on BackYard Chickens
I have 31 birds in a grow out pen in my stall, 8 of them are guinea. I noticed one being trampled so I moved it, and it cannot walk. I've put it in a crate inside the house. eats and drinks fine. no visible injuries. what should I look for and how can I help? they're on all-flock starter. I'm new to birds in general.
You don't say how old your guineas are. Guinea keets need a high protein diet such as turkey or gamebird starter (26-30% protein) for proper development.
Guineas as keets and even as adults have much more fragile legs than chickens and can be injured very easily.
All flock if it is a minimum of 16% protein is acceptable for adult guineas but is not suitable for juvenile guineas.
