I was in Orscheln's last week and, of course, had to stop by the chick cages. They had sold all but one of the guineas (why?!!!) and the little guy was in a screaming frenzy. Several other ladies drifted over and we all agreed that this was NOT ok. When we complained to the clerk he said, "Buy him." I turned to go but only made it about 15 feet. I had $10 with me, so I had to put back my chick starter when I went back to get him; and since he couldn't be brooded alone at my house either, I bought a somewhat older EE to be his big sister. The crying stopped immediately as he snuggled under her pin feathers. She was a little annoyed at first. She adapted quickly and now he's her baby. They're great for now but what will happen as they grow? Is there a guinea flock in my future or can he be integrated with the chickens? Oh, my son says I'm grounded from Orscheln's.
