Hi all! I've followed your posts and finally took the leap and picked up four guinea keets two days ago - now 6 days old. One is having some troubles. He's much smaller and seems to be unable to peck up seeds with his beak. I think he must be getting some food from the crumble in the feeder but I see the seeds scatter when he tries to peck on the ground. He's more wobbly and lethargic than the others but still keeps with the group for the most part. But I've seen him sleeping apart with his head in the feeder a few times. He had sticky butt (which I'm on top of) and diarrhea (which seems a little better since I added probiotics and electrolytes to their water). Is there anything else I can do? He won't eat from my hand. Has anybody else seen this before? Thanks in advance for your advice!
