I have 20 new keets hatched out this morning. They are so cute. I usually hatch out chicks and ducks but this is the first time with Guineas. My friend brought me 5 dz and said to hatch them. I get to keep half. Some are a purple color but most are the usual brown striped. I really do not care what color as long as they do the bug patrol here on the farm. Sure is funny because I just had one show up at my farm a bit over a week ago and is now cooping up with my chickens at night. All these years on the farm with no Guineas and as soon as I set eggs in the 'bator one decides he can come live here. Now he will have friends. Although, I heard another Guinea calling last night back in the woods. Whatever neighbor is getting them must not realize grown ones will wander off if not keep penned or raised there. I hope to get mine to stay close. I must have the right conditions for the one Guinea to have shown up and make himself at home. The purples/lavenders are really cute.
