Hi, I want to inform you about guinea fowl. Basics So if you are a newbie, like me, You want to know about them. First, you need to find an appropriate place to raise them. I used a metal tub, then we had to use a large dog kennel, so they wouldn't harm each other, because we had pheasants too. Note: These are not ours. Just needed an example. Second, you need to have feeders and waterers so they can drink and eat, I've heard that using a bowl is dangerous, because the chicks can't get back up. A feeder is not that essential because if you don't have one it's fine because grown up, they peck at the ground anyways, but I do recommend a one. For the food you need to have a high protein feed. The water needs to be hot because they can only tolerate warmer water. Third, you need bedding. I would use some wet paper towels for the floor, for the first week. Never use wet newspaper because it can cause their feet to splay. Next, until you put them in the coop. You should use wood shavings(Never Cedar, It can kill them.) or paper bedding like me. At 7-9 weeks(Tell me if this is wrong), you should put them in the coop for 9 weeks so they know where home is. Also, make a sound or word to let them know come home and use it when their in the coop so that becomes a word that mean "Go Home" to them. After that, You should let explore, a few at a time since they are flock birds. And when the time comes you can release them.
