    On Friday I went back to the man I got my Guinea keets from to pick up a six week old BO pullet to keep Peepers, my “special needs” Guinea Fowl, company when I put him in a cage outside. While there the man told his son to go and get “the chick”. “The Chick” turned out be a keet that had hatched while he was cleaning out the brooder and would have gotten thrown out if he hadn’t noticed Cookie pipping. I bought it along with two pullets, the six week old BO and a Black Sex Link.
    Its name is Cookie due to the fact that I brought it home in a Girl Scout Cookie shipping box.

    Here Cookie is the day I got it.

    I couldn't leave Cookie by itself so I got some week old EE pullets from a guy I'd gotten three BOs from last year. Their names are: (silver one) Puffin, (light brown) Quiche, and (dark brown) Walnut.
