    I have two guineas that are six months old, they have what I call their own Guinea Inn in a fenced area...
    in this fenced area I put a hutch with keets in it... those two older guineas just watch them all day, rarely go out
    free ranging, & seem alittle protective. It is cute to watch.... [​IMG]
    My first question I am wondering if the older guineas know this are baby guineas?
    At what age can the young ones roam safely with the older guineas? I believe the two older ones are boys
    & I don't know how the older ones will treat the young ones.

    Originally I bought the two older ones to help with tick control ... I have lymes disease & was bit twice this year
    already [​IMG]. But have really come to like these goofy guineas [​IMG]
    I bought more & hatched some & all are doing great!

    Thanx ~~Jen~~

    I'd say about 2-3 months they should be ok....
