I went from having 6 birds (4 hens, a turkey & a duck) to 26 in the space of a week. My friend called me yesterday and she had done me a wonderful favour! She went and got 16 guinea fowl eggs and popped them in her incubator for me! She hates guinea keets so they are mine. lol! Why I wanted a potential 16 extra guinea fowl I'll never know. So potentially - that is an additional 16 birds that won't count at all. My current 6 guinea keets escaped their brooder today and made a horrible mess of the spare room in my house. I started to laugh at my husband because it is classed as 'his' room... and it is his fault for not building me a bigger & more secure brooder. Then I quickly realised who will actually have to clean that room and I wasn't so impressed.
