    So I've got two 1 day old helmeted guinea fowl keets.
    What to do?????
    Keep in my mind that I live in a very secluded place (the bush) with limited supply.

    Thanks

    weed seeds and bugs is their normal diet. corn meal ,scrambled eggs, high protein feed. careful with the water that they dont fall in and drown. other that the 90-95 temperature for a week and then dropping it by 5 every week i cant think of what else you could feed them. they are just like chickens except for a higher protein diet. if you can get anywhere between 20-24 percent that would be good

    Thanks so much..they are sleeping like babies at the moment. I put them in a box with a towel, a light and a warm water bottle.
