good. I just got 3 bantams. One bantam I squashed accidently by putting the waterer in the cage. I learned how fragile they are. The other was the fault of my hen I left in their. So I got three fine ones. The yellow baby feathered bantam had like 4 pink spots, 2 on one wing at the top arm part and 1 on the other same region of that wing and one spot was on her back but it got a lil pinker... she's with barred rock babies and they are same size as the black giant babies. they are growing up together. The giants were about the same size as the barreds at first. now they are all growing. The yellow is growing a lot for a bantam.
I wish I can start hatching keets. I never had yet. I have no male guinea. Like 6 months ago my only and first male guinea got ran over on our road. Someday we plan to move and he would have been safer at our bigger farm. We always free-ranged our birds. I was lucky, I got my first 4 guineas, they turned out to be 3 girls and one boy. but now I'm down to one girl.
I was asking you all that because we think the rooster may be doing her too besides his only 7 adult hens now. Which we got 2 new females for him I seen him do the dance for his babies, which he dont know they are his own babies. But I did get 5 new males, RIR's. 4 of my roosters babies are males and we gotta eat 3 of them, cuz of too many males... I wanted one RIR st. run b/c it's a bigger chance of male but my man I live with said make it 5. We got 5 Americana baby pullets too. Why are girls pullets, exactly, why called that? pull-its? pollo is italian for chicken, male. polli is italian for males and females grouped together or only males in a group of chickens. Polle is if it were females, all female in a group only. Polla is one single female chicken. French has the -ette I thought. Like Baguette.
I know there are people out there that can hatch keets often. Maybe I'm not the kind of person for that... How do you find a secluded nest? I thought it would be simple but our birds go to our neighbors and their dogs barked when I tried to follow her one day.
OOh... wait.. do Guineas have an "egg song" of their own after they lay like a chicken? I hear her do that... but I ran there and seen nothing. I didn't know where to look. I was careful not to make the neighbor's dog bark... The neighbor gave me a weird look for going there. Soon we will fence in our birds in a big area, once we get fencing for that... Maybe I'll have better luck for a half-bred guinea. When we move, we'll have to order more Guinea babies/fertilized eggs. We are going to live in Oklahoma, can you help me with that? But I know a place I can order them from another state close by enough.. but do you know if you got something like that or a place closer to me that you know of?
It's all good.
