Hi everyone, I am new to the forum and so excited to be here! We just got chickens last spring and have 9 layers and one very sweet rooster. Today is day 20 in the incubator and we have 9 eggs, with 3 that are pipped externally and about 3 with internal pips. Myself and two daughters are watching with baited breath! No one zipping yet. One pipped on the side, and another pipped on the wrong end, so it could be quite an adventure over the next couple of days. Anyway, my question is related to keeping keets and chicks in the same brooder. Last weekend I got five guinea hen keets. Three of them are 2 weeks old and two of them are now one week old. I've read that if I raise them with chicks, then they are more likely to stay around the homestead, as the chickens will be considered a part of their social group. My question is about adding two-day old chicks in with 2 -week old keets. Does anyone have any experience with this? I know temperature regulation will be a challenge, but plan to keep the heat lamp there and the temp at 95 degrees for the new babies. I figure that the older keets will just move farther away from that corner of the brooder until they find a spot that is more comfortable for them. I'll have two chick-safe waterers and feeders so there won't be crowding. The keets are on chick-starter feed, which I've read is fine for them. They may grow more slowly, but since they will be living in the laundry room until fully feathered, that is fine with me. Does anyone have any experience they can share in this regard and if so, could you let me know of any other potential problems you might foresee with this plan? Thanks, and wish me luck this weekend with our little eggs. I am trying to prepare myself that they won't all make it, but will cry for sure if any die!! This is so wonderful and heart-wrenching all at the same time!
