    Hello, everyone! I joined this forum because of how much helpful information I was reading regarding keets and fowls. It's a relief to know you all are a couple clicks away if I have any questions or want to share the progress of the newest addition to our farm.

    My husband and I have started cultivating his grandfather's farm this past year and the insects are AWFUL. Someone suggested we get some guineas and after reading about them, I couldn't wait to get some over at the farm.

    We are both very new to this, but super excited!! Thanks for reading!

    welcome to BYC

    be patient with your guineas, they are slow to mature, consider protecting them for six months or more if your facilities can accommodate.
