heres some pics of my new guineas
i also need name ideas
Grown or keets? Keep them cooped up for about a month before allowing them out of a pen, if they aren't newly hatched. And they can fly like crazy, too, just remember. They do best on Game Bird feed, but will survive on chicken feed.
their a few months old
Enjoy them they are so much fun. All my flock pays attention to every movement and sound they make. They are the guard dog of your flock and home too. I dont need a door bell they let me know some one or thing is here.
Then keeping them in a coop or covered pen for at least a month is necessary or they'll take off to try to find their former home when you let them go.
i got my guineas today ther doing real well
Great! We'd like to see pictures of them.
I have found if you have a big place, you don't have to lock them up for long, I recently got 2 really heavy pied boys that are fully grown.... I penned them for an hour.... yes an hour, then opened the door! They are doing great. Alot of people will disagree with my method, but I have done it several times and never lost one.... peafowl on the other hand.......Do what feels right for you though, this is just my experience with them. PS just got a pied cinnamon girl and she is laying already!
bemba, you were really lucky with yours then! I miss my goonie-birds. They are hilarious and crazy and stupid-smart.
hwo do you tell if they are male or female
