if anyone has any baby, young, or adult guinea fowl please post them here..... PLEASE!!
Here's some of mine at 5 weeks old. It's pretty hot and humid right now, so they were relaxing in their box.
I no longer own these guineas, but many BYCers from the other site know them as Radar, Dodger, Mousse and Charlotte. I miss the goofy things-they had to be rehomed.
Wow, how did you get yours so tame? Ours have always been a little crazy.
We spent lots of time with them, handled them alot, fed them by hand, etc. My alpha male, Dodger, was the friendliest.
Did you raise them by hand? I've only been succesful in catching them and putting them under a banty hen. The guineas just don't mother them well. Although, I do have one guinea hen who has kept her chick for over a week now. I've also never succeeded in catching them and raising them myself. I've tried with few, but they get weak and die.
I raised these four from keet-hood (bought at feedstore-they're Ideal stock). Had them for almost six months when the attempted murder started. The guineas vs the RIR girls. It wasn't pretty and I had to choose between the guineas and the chickens. One day I may put some guinea eggs under a broody and let her tell them they're chickens, LOL.
Speckledhen You are on to something with them being raised with a chicken.
I have 5 Guinea Keets (4 weeks old now). They have been raised with chicks and ducklings. It is amazing that they have never been loud like I was warned. And when they are outside for some free-ranging, they stay very close to our ducks and geese (agian they were raised together).
awww I had 20 healthy baby guinea's... untill....
