Okay, I hope some out there can give me some tips and advice. I have 15 chickens, 7 cats, 2 ducks and 1 rabbit. I have had cats all my life and know as much about them as I probably ever will, then again, who knows. I have three chicken books I have read from cover to cover and cover to cover again. And, still refer to them regularly. I have one duck book that I have also read cover to cover, although I thought I would never get through that chapter on DNA (Boring stuff when you really aren't looking to breed). My daughter has told me a little about how to care for her baby and we follow her instructions to the letter (and I am STILL waiting for her to bring me a book on rabbits....if I have to buy it, guess who owns the rabbit!). Now for the advice part. We just got home with 4 baby guineas (or keets as I have learned). We really tried to pick the brains of the breeders and they are family friends so I can ask them for help anytime I want, however - as you may have guessed - I really would like a guide for raising guineas to reference so I don't have to pester this sweet family every time something new occurs. So, with that being said, I would love to find a reliable reference book on Guineas. I picked up guineas because I heard they were as good as a guard dog when it comes to something being in the yard and since we lost two precious hens a couple of weeks back, I am looking for all the guarding I can get. I know these little babies aren't up to task just yet since they are only a week old, but when they are this cute - that doesn't matter.
