Congrats I have 2 guineas and I love them both. Β They really were easier to take care of in the brooder then chicks. Β I know nothing about hatching in an incubater so I can't help you with that. Β

Aww, that's awesome! Mine hate me right now I think, lol πŸ™ They won't come near me or my hand, hate to be touched, I've tried getting them to eat out of my hand and they run around like the sky is falling. When I had chicks, they loved to be picked up and cuddled and would fall asleep on me. How can I get these little ones to like me?! 😫

They are not like chickens at all, they are barely domesticated. If you want them to be really friendly its going to take a lot of time and treats to make them trust you and even after all that there is no guarantee that they will become overly friendly. Speak in a calm voice around them and repeat phrases so they reconise you and tust you. Good luck.

Thanks Redguinea! I have one last Guinea that is still in the incubator waiting to fluff, and he LOVES it when I come to see him, lol! I will work on the others 😊

If you aren't home during the day another way to get them to be more approachable is to get a radio and play it when your not there so they get used to noises.
