    Guineas are cool. I like your birds. Do keets look alot like poults? I've only ever seen pictures of keets and saw poults many years ago and in pictures so I don't really know.

    I love my guineas. I have eggs in the bator now due to hatch at the end of this week. Thanks for sharing your photos.

    Really you people should not be allowed to make such posts. It is causing me to desire guineas, as if I need more birds! [​IMG]

    Seriously, they are beautiful birds! Thank you for sharing.

    While we are on the subject...do guineas free range more successfully than chickens? It seems they don't fall victim to predators as easily. Is this true?

    Guineas tend to be more wild and often do better left to themselves to free range.

    Thanks, we do enjoy them. Kurt, yes they do look like poults only smaller. These ones (we have maybe 8 or 10 I think) free range, usually without any problems. They are semi- wild. I couldn't catch one if I wanted too except maybe if I got real lucky and it happened to go in the hen house!

    I love Guineas too. They are so comical.

    Nice shots of your birds. I remember when mine were keats...so cute!

    I have eggs ready for the bator next week
