I'm new to the BYC. I recently had seven keets given to me. A woman at church got some eggs to hatch with her kids, then found out her home owner's association wouldn't let her have guineas. Duh. Anyway, I got them and they're very cute! They're about 8 weeks old in this pic. I'm assuming the light ones are powder blue, they don't really look lavendar to me. but then, I don't know anything. Question: I've read quite a bit on here about sexing by their call. I've spent some time listening to my keets and I hear two different calls. One is just a little chirp noise, like the chi chi chi. The other is a two syllable call, but I can't really say it's buck wheat. It's two syllables, though. Would that be the girl call? And what do you use for banding? I'd like to mark the females, but what do I use? Thanks!!!
