Hello everyone! This is my fist post here at BYC, and I have included a photo of my new babies! Now, I've wanted Guinea Fowl for a little while, and I finally found some 3 month olds. The man I went to buy them from had them and some 5 week olds. As you can see from the photo, I bought some of the latter, because he thought I'd asked for them instead and so he didn't have the 3 month olds any more. So here I am. I've researched how to look after older keets, but I would love some advise on what to feed these guys and ask if they need any more extra heat. At the moment, I have them in with my Isa Brown chickens, who are a kind and docile lot. The picture above is them in the shed and the run itself is quite large and covered so they wont be flying out. I intend to let them out, free-range, like I do my chooks an about a month. Should I clip wings? At the moment, I'm giving them dandelion leaves, chook scratch mix and chook pellets. I also have a batch of chook eggs on the incubator. When the new chicken chicks grow a little, would it be bad to have them with the main flock, like I've done in the past, or should I keep them separate from the guinea fowl? I live on a property, and we're building a 1/2 acre chook and duck run (we have a dam for the ducks and water hangers for the chooks so they don't contaminate the water source), so we will have the space. Sorry, if I'm asking silly questions. I just want some advise from people who know the birds rather than looking through Google for a hundred different answers to the same question. Edit: Just randomly; one of my Isa Browns has taken to following the keets around and gently nudging them (definitely not pecking them). It's almost like she's grooming them, but I've never seen an Isa go broody before. Is this normal? Or just rediculously adorable?
