I was at a sale about 2 months ago, and there were some guinea eggs for sale. I just hatched and had a incubator empty. Soooooo I bought 4 dozen eggs at 2.00 a piece. During that time storms knocked out the power enough I only got about a 50% hatch, thats still about 25 keets, not bad. I have at least 2 of the following colors. Pearl, white, Purple, Coral blue, Slate blue, chocolate Violet, Bronze, and Pied. Again.. not a bad 8.00 investment. I have never had Guinea befor and now that the little darlings run from me like they hate me, and are in that tweet ager stage of looking pretty rediculous with those long wing feathers( LOL.. I love this stage they are so funny) Im wondering.. ok.. now what.. what have I done? I have a very large chicken pen where a Akbash dog guards them, do I clip the wings and assure they stay safe in the pen? Do I allow them to fly out and roam the 30 acers they could very well use hoping they come back at night? Do I open the brooder house window and let them come and go as they please back to their child hood home? 25, dang.. thats allot of new winter shelter. How insulated do they need for winter? or do they just need wind breaks like the ducks? Im thinking I should have had to pass a test to buy those eggs .. in the mean time, they are happy and healthy and I adore them.
