    Thanks for the help. I have no idea, it was just running around the driveway. I don't know of anyone around me that keeps Guinea Fowl.

    Here's another picture, further away but clearer. Poor thing is scared to death. It has blue eyes. A guess at how old?

    I don't keep Guineas but it looks about 4 weeks old. :)

    Yes keets and other poultry need heat for at least their first 4-6 weeks. In colder weather I would probably keep them with a heat lamp a bit longer.

    Maybe, I looked around to see if I could find anymore but nothing. I just don't understand why they would dump it on a cattle farm but you never know. It has a nice comfy home in a large pet carrier in my house now lol
