***disclaimer: this is about some special needs keets I just hatched. Knowing that if your only recommendation is to cull I would prefer if you ignored this.*** So my guinea layed her first ever batch of eggs at 5 months old and started sitting on them. I tried to move her out of my field to a dog crate so she could be safe but she said no and stopped sitting on the eggs. I saw that they had already started developing so I put them in the incubator. I didn't even think about the fact they could be too small because they looked a decent size compared to my chickens eggs (chicken is 6 months old.) Come time to hatch 1 hatches along with my two chicks. That's the only one who's turned right in the egg but I didn't realise that until a few days later. 5 eggs died and I slowly helped the last 3 alive. While I was helping the last 3 hatch the first guinea got weak and died. So one egg eventually died and I've got two little guineas now. The eggs was too small so their beaks are curved and their feet were messed up. I've got their feet taped up but I realise if they get crossbeaks I'll have to wash their face and take care of them more closely I assume. So I need to try and make these two little babies love me. I'm really trying and really want them to live. They can't walk yet but that might be because on the big shoes. Any advice at all would be wonderful. Be it about special needs birds or how to magically make guineas love me. I know it can be done. A lady in my FB group has a house guinea that sleeps with her at night......I'm so jealous.....I really love guineas for some reason. But I definitely need all the advice I can get so please fire away. Below are some pics of the lavender one. The Pearl one is resting in a tissue filled cup so I haven't bothered it for pictures.
