I am momma to two dozen Guinea keets born last Thursday. They are being kept inside and at present am using two large printer boxes covered with lattice for housing. Heat lamp temp seems to vary from mid 90's to 80 on the nose and they are all doing well. Today am trying to score a 3rd box in order to make them a condo - in the hopes that I can offer food and water on one side so they aren't messing in all their food. That is my concern -- am changing their water out several times a day from where they track poop and food into it. Of course I know they are stepping in poop too. Is walking in this poop dangerous for them? I have them on paper towels that I change out twice a day. Also seems like I am tossing almost as much food than they are eating - just because of it being soiled in. I have tried the metal circular feeders and they literally tossed or scratched that out of the holes and all around the feeders. Last night I put it in a plastic plant tray - they still managed to send it sailing as well! I know I need to begin plans to move them to a wired enclosure in about 3-4 weeks but they still have their fuzzy feathers with the hint of, I guess, pin feathers starting to appear. Something is starting to show up on those little wings. I try to move them between boxes every other day because I don't want to keep them in stress every 24 hours. Just moved them a few minutes ago to the clean/waiting box. They are flopped out on their bellies with feet behind them and trying to snooze away. Any pointers will be terrifically appreciated.
