    I did my research and got an area ready for them but I was wondering if you can tell age and what kind of keets they are, I read you can't really tell male/female til about 5-6 wks by their call

    Here is a picture of them, DH bought them from TSC, the workers there do not know the ages, I was hoping for a ball park age so I can care for them better [​IMG]

    Thank you all for your help!

    Cutie pie little pearl grays. A week or so old is my guess. Congratulations! You have them under a lamp?

    Do not underestimate their abilities! Make sure they are secure!

    Aren't keets sooooo cute. I would say they are under a week old. To double check the coloring check out www.guineafowlinternational.com
    They have some very good info. Hope you have fun with your babies. I think I'm up to about 20 adults now, I just love their antics. [​IMG][​IMG]
