    AGGRESSIVE GUINEAS (bonus turkey question)

    Last year I purchased four guinea keets and six turkeys. They’re all full grown now, but recently I started to notice some behavioral issues. I raised the turkeys and guineas together, and then introduced them to my flock of ten chickens and one rooster. I am now down to two guineas ( 1 male, 1...

    Behavioral issues, bullying

    I have 4 guinea hens I received when they were around 3-4 weeks old. The 4 grew up together but, of course, one was always a little at the bottom of the pecking order; that said, no one was really pecking or bothering each other at that time. Much to my surprise, I ended up with 3 roosters and...

    My Experience Owning Guinea Fowl

    We are actually pretty new to raising guinea fowl, but we LOVE THEM. They are good layers and do wonderful with our bannie chickens. I thought I might post a forum on whether a person should get guineas or not because they definitely aren't for everyone. Cons: 1) Guineas require a lot of...

    Guinea fowl pullet illness, unknown

    hello everyone, this is my first post here, and I figured I’d get more help than what I’d get from reddit or some other site. Just yesterday I adopted a 7 week old guinea from a family friend.

One of them charged me the other day, but I kicked it away and they haven’t tried again. Why are they...

    Chickens raising keets?

    hi, Long story short, I live in rural PA where ticks are a HUGE problem. We have free range chickens (9 after recent predators), and two broody hens. So I had the maybe not so bright idea to get my hands on some guinea hatching eggs and separated the girls into their own coops and placed...

    What should I do for housing, mixed family?

    I took a “family” of 1 chick and 4 guinea keets, as well as the hen momma raising them. They had been with an Amish boy who let them all run around together in a barn. Rough guess is they are all now about 4 weeks old (minus Mom of course). She takes beautiful care of them and they all seem...
