We let our keets out of their pen today. A tiny, half-grown cockerel chased them into the open and now they're scouting out the area. Yesterday we were told by a friend who keeps both guineas and chickens that if you let the two together the guineas will run down the chickens until they can no longer run and then they will kill them. So far all that I've read on the Internet has told me otherwise, but I'd like to see what other experiences people have had. So I'd like to know: Do your guineas chase and/or kill the chickens? Do you free-range your guineas and/or chickens? Do you have any tips for getting the guineas back into their pen at dusk? And, last but not least, how old do the keets have to be to guess their gender by their wattles? I've read that the cocks can have a bigger pair of wattles and helmet than the hens. I heard at least one of the keets making a "buck-wheat" type of sound today. (Although to me it sounded like "look-alive"!) So I'm guessing that we have at least one female. Thanks!
