Well, it is official my guineas do know that they are guineas. I raised to guineas to adult hood with chickens, one male and one female. They have always slept with the chickens, eaten with the chickens- so on and so forth. I even had my chicken roo mating my guinea hen! Yikes! So, about 10 weeks ago I purchased guinea keets from a friend. I had chics from MPC at the same time. When it was time to move the chics to the grow out coop I had one chick, Dallas, who was too little to go. She stayed behind and finished feathering with the buckwheat babies. So now- everyone is in the same coop and guess what????? The guineas are together and the chickens are together. Dallas has been adopted by the pullets that came in the same box with her from MPC, and the keets have fallen in with Mama and Papa Guinea. I found it interesting that the Guineas didn't know they were guineas untill they were given babies to raise. They treat those keets just like their own. Protecting them and herding them around, and sweet Dallas, while still just as wild as the guineas is chilling with her own peeps. No more buckwheat babies for her! I love nature!!!!!
