    Hi there, my girls are 25 days old and I still have them in their brooder in the garage, I noticed that some of them have really runny poops, and they sure are smelly! They have been great up until now, they have been on the medicated started crumbs. Any ideas?
    Also. today I finally got my beloved Guineas (being a SA Chick) got 4 Guineas and 2 ducklings which are about a week old.
    The ducklings don't mind being picked up, but boy those Guineas! I guess my Q is can I leave the ducklings and the Guineas in the same brooder?
    Ok, so that's 2 Q, first about the runny stinky poop, & then about having the Guineas & ducklings tog.
    Thank you so much!

    You could ask on the Guinea thread, I don't know anything about them other than they are very noisy and love to eat ticks.

    Hi and welcome to BYC. Maybe if you also post on the duck thread, you will hopefully get feedback from experts on keeping both!

    All the best
