    Hello,
    Well done with your guinea fowl I hope they get on OK! Were they in the incubator all the time?
    I just love the feet, I've always fancied them (they call them 'gleanies' down here), but I think they might be a bit too noisy/hard to contain. A farmer down the lane has a flock and they are always spilling out onto the road doing their own traffic calming!
    The other chicks are looking so much better as well....

    Not a bad first attempt [​IMG]

    I think your babies are very cute. I am expecting my own tomorrow. They are under a hen though. So, I will not get to watch, but am super excited anyway.

    Yes the guinea fowl are cute yeah i had them in the incubator all the time through the first hatch it was a bit risky but i thought i would give it a go. They are noisy birds i have them at the farm i have my chickens at and they dnt shut up lol there in the spare room now and they are noisier than the other chicks. I havent put them together yet as they look so small compared to the other chicks il give it a few more days.

    Another one of my guinea fowl died last night i dont know why the temp was right annd all 3 seemed on wen they hatched. I didnt want to leave my last one on its own so i have put it in with the other 3 chick a week older they seem to be ok there was a bit of pecking but all seems to be ok up to now.
