Hi, everyone! I finally decided to join BYC after months of lurking and reading through all the information and looking at pics. Since Friday I have been the mama to 30 guinea keets. Hopefully I will sell some and that number will go down! They are from Cackle Hatchery in MO. Right now they are in a XL wire dog crate with wire on the sides and a day and a night heat lamp, although the days are warm right now and they are on an enclosed uninsulated porch so I am still playing with having the temps stay reasonable throughout the day while I am at work. Today I am off so I am doing some fiddling with it so I can have more peace of mind while I am away. I just switched them to pine shavings yesterday as now they are a week old. So far, it is working much better than just the puppy pads I was using. They are enjoying kicking it around everywhere, I just hope nobody decides to make a meal out of it. I have been able to get a lot of my questions answered just by searching and reading the boards, and I will continue to do so because I don't want to ask the same questions that others have asked millions of times. For now I will just introduce myself and share some pics These pics are from the first 24 hours. I was not expecting them until Saturday and did not have the brooder ready. They showed up at the post office on Friday so my husband had to go get them real quick before heading out of town and throw something together real quick. Luckily they were on the front porch where the dogs and cat couldn't get to them because when I got home that evening only 11 were in the cage and the rest had managed to get out and were hiding in all the junk on the porch!
