    Good morning. I have had chickens for years and just decided to try my hand at raising guineas to roam the acreage and take care of pests for me. I got 4 guinea keets about a week ago. I went out to the brooder yesterday afternoon and unfortunately it appears that 2 of them had passed, the other two seemed fine and then the third one passed this morning! Besides being devastated and checking all of the temperatures etc. the last one seems perfectly content and fine. I am looking to find someone that has some keets at this time in my area so that this little one is not alone but I have not been successful thus far. Some people might have some next week but that it the closet I have found. Will this little one be alright being raised on it's own?

    Did you figure out what might be causing them to pass----before you get some more??

    I have not yet. I do believe that maybe they got trampled? They had food and water and the last one has been fine since it all happened, growing and eating and drinking like a champ.
