    I just picked up 17 guinea keets to add to my lonely bird I hatched! They are 2 days apart in age and seem to be healthy little peeps! I have them in a brooder box in my livingroom. I think hubby is going to have to watch tv in the bedroom..they are soo loud! Will have to figure out how to post some photos!

    Congrats on the keets! [​IMG] What colors did ya get? [​IMG] A broody game hen hatched out 3 Pearl Guinea Keets last Thursday. Super fat chubby keets! [​IMG] I have 6 older Guineas that roam around, they are: Lavender, Pearl, and Pied. The Pied variety is my favorite. [​IMG]

    Sorry for the delay in answering! Tried and tried to post...then realized I was not signed in. Jeez, there's a blonde for ya. Anyway...I have some lavender, and some pied. The hen they came from is a pied and the male is a lavender. The pied guineas are Adorable!! I also have 1 chick that is pearl that we hatched here. Only one to make it out of the shell. Will try harder this batch. Also have 3 grown pearl guineas. No chickens yet! Need a bigger coop![​IMG]

    I love the guineas. I have NO ticks when I have enough guineas..I had quite a few ticks this spring before I stated letting them free range. I was finding them on the cats, dog and horses! And Me! I started out with 12 last year. Lost one as a chick. Bad neighbors dog got a few and a fox got the rest. Really don't like having only 3. So I fixed that problem!! I would love to have some white ones!
