    I got a surprising (for me) response from the hatchery today about the guinea keets I've been losing since they arrived on Friday. They're going to ship me 10 more at their expense. (Not that I need more stress for me! [​IMG] )

    But other than 95% heat, 24% chick starter (unmedicated), vitamins and electrolytes, what does everyone really, really recommend?

    Going by last week's order they won't get here till Friday morning, so I could get something shipped in time if I don't have it.
