    I already have a flock of 10 chicks, but this spring I would like to get some MORE chickens, because I am addicted, and would also like a few guineas. My issue is that I know guineas eat turkey food? and therefore, could I keep the chicks and guineas in the same brooder?

    Guinea keets are sensitive babies do be careful, you might be able to divide the brooder depending on how many of each you get, try to get them around the same size so the chicks dont peck at the keet's heads (i had this happen). My best advise is also a small waterer a quail one will work fine thats what we ended up using since ours were just hatched, if they are older you dont need to get a quail waterer. If you want them to remain friendly handle them every day, they are very very loud when spooked too. Hope this helps.
