    Color help question. What color are these keets?

    I have the same few guineas as I did last year. Pearl, Lavender, and pied of each. All babies last year were those same colors, and I kept a couple of hens from that hatch. This year, I have had two white keets pop up and now this one that looks to me like maybe a royal purple. Just wanted a...

    Idea for humidity

    After doing this, I thought that there's no way someone hasn't thought of this before. Forgive me if this is a repeat. I had a few extra spots in my small LG incubator and I have been having trouble with my humidity dropping quickly. I would have to add water every two or three days which I...

    22 in the oven and an experiment

    Just picked up some eggs from a very nice local lady yesterday and put them in the bator this morning. Can't wait for the new colors to hatch. Had 3 dozen. Decided to let a buddy incubate 12, and put 22 in my own bator. I made a nesting box and stuck it in one of the guineas favorite little...

    Different pairs daily?

    My guineas seem to be pairing up fine, but they switch up fairly often. Is this swinging type behavior typical or should they pick a mate and stick together. There are 4 hens and three roos and still lots of chasing/fighting amongst the boys.

    Question about fertile eggs

    Excuse my ignorance, but my neighbor told me something that just sounded strange to me, and I wanted to ask you all if this is possible. He has some mixed breed small / medium sized hens that lay smaller to medium light brown eggs. He wanted bigger eggs like mine so I gave him a big rooster when...

    Anyone still hatching?

    I thought it was kinda late, but my oldest hen went missing a couple days ago and I found her on a small nest of 15 eggs. I thought is was a little late for this on the East coast. This makes 4 times this season for her. Is that typical?

    Early Bird!

    I'm not sure what to think. I put a clutch of eggs in the bator on the 12th. My hen was gone for no more than 2 or 3 days before I found her on the eggs. My best guess is that she started to sit on the 10th of june. I went to turn the eggs this morning and there was a healthy hatched keet in...

    Guinea hatchery or breeder.

    Anyone know of a hatchery with a low minimum ordering number? Or maybe a breeder that will ship to NC? I am thinking of adding a few of the more colors to my flock, but I don't want to have to sell a bunch of extras. I wan't royal purple, violet, and chocolate. Maybe a couple others. Anybody...

    Back from??? Where was she?

    I just went outside and one of my RIR hens that I haven't seen in weeks was there. I thought a hawk had got her or something. I found one hen dead in the coop about 3 weeks ago and the other one just dissapeared about a week before that. I didn't see any babies, and her comb looked a little...

    My two roos, I wonder what they are??? Pics

    These two guys tolerate each other and take good care of the girls. They're great to have around and I like how they look. I imagine they are mixed but have no idea with what. Any guesses?

    Help with BO gender

    Can I get a hand sexing these 3 BOs? They are 15 weeks old, I just suck at knowing gender until I see an egg or hear one crow. I have included a couple extra pics of the white chickens too with hopes of knowing their sex as well. TIA

    Ok, I think they're about ready???

    So I robbed my guinea nest from my hen who was setting, and put the eggs in the bator on the 12th. I let her sit for 7-10 days after I found her. Not sure how long she was sitting before I found her. So I'm thinking they could possibly be ready soon. I candled(again) and some of the eggs still...

    Problem with hatch???

    I candled my eggs last night and it looks like the air pocket is at the pointy end of each egg. Is this usual for guinea eggs? This is my first time hatching guineas. They all seem to be developing well I guess, as I can barely see through the eggs any more. They just look different from what...

    Question about turning eggs

    I took off with the family yesterday around 5pm on an overnight trip. When I got home this evening around 8pm, I noticed the turner stopped working. The temp had dropped too, but only one degree. I don't know how long the turner was not working, but now I'm hand turning. My question is...

    Eggs and a Hamm!

    The 2 eggs are hiding, and I'll give you one guess who the hamm is lol. I came home, checked the eggs, and saw this guy in the coop. After I played the "look how many eggs are in the coop " trick on the wife and kids, it was time for the unwelcome visitor to depart. I hate to dispatch wildlife...

    Ok I'm commited and need advice before I jump

    I have a hen sitting on 20 some eggs. She is my only hen, and while I want more guineas, I don't want to loose her to a predator. I have the bator ad a steady 99.5+-1 and 50%ish humidity. What would be the best way to go about stealing her eggs? Should I wait until she is off or just go get...
