So, I ordered 12 guinea keets for pickup from Ridgeway Hatchery in LaRue, Ohio. They were hatched on Wednesday afternoon...I didn't get a call from the hatchery until 3:30pm on THURSDAY and it went to voicemail...didn't get vm until 4:15 and they close at 5:00 pm...and they are an hour away from me... So I wasn't able to get them until this morning. Lady at the hatchery said she put them on feed and water last night. I picked them up at 8:30 am this morning and they added 5 extra keets (so we had 17) because a few were looking poorly. Drove the hour home and almost immediately upon arrival 2 died. A 3rd quickly followed and then a 4th. We just lost the 5th a little while ago. And the 6th just died after the remaining 11 piled on top of it to sleep...bending it's neck clear back...there was no way I could have saved it by the time I discovered the pile up. This is my first go round with guineas...and I'm really frustrated. Ticked off is more like it... Is it normal to lose so many? Are they really that fragile? I've raised chicks and ducklings and never seen anything like this... Their brooder is at 93*-96*, they have a 24% feed (highest I could find) and water in one of those quail waterers (no way to drown). They are on bedding pads sold to me by the hatchery (same thing they put into the box when they ship chicks). On the way home I really expected to lose 4...just because of the way they were looking...but now I've lost 6! I don't want to lose anymore...what else can I / should I be doing?? Please help! Thank you!
