    Guinea's

    I hatched and brooded chicks, keets, and ducklings together. The ducklings were so much bigger that they bullied the chicks and keets. When the keets got to about 3 months, they started attacking the cockerels first, then later the ducks. I had to separate the guineas and other fowl, and rehome...

    Free Ranging Guineas

    Poor Blu - and what a sweet pic!!! I would not be able to get a pic like that of mine unless they were indeed dying... Are Blu’s feet doing any better? With his health problems, I wonder if he will really come into season and undergo as much in the way of mating issues as most of them do... I...
