    Is it possible to have a broody hen raise guinea keets and chicks together, or are there complications? Thanks

    Generally yes if they are introduced to her all at the same time. I have had hens raise mixed broods of ducklings and chicks and many other combinations. On the flip side I have had hens who would only accept chicks of one color killing any that were 'different'. Give it a try, but have a plan B in case things go wrong.
