My Guineas are all free range and allowed to come back into the coop at night if they wish. Nasty weather finds them happy in the coop but nice summer nights find them in the top of my large oak and walnut trees. This morning, while letting the chickens out of the coop I heard a telltale peep sound....I began looking around and found my 3 Guineas leading a brood of about 14 to 20 baby keets around in the grass in my pasture. I am guessing they were nesting under the cedar trees out there...the branches touch the ground around the perimeter making for a cozy, dry spot underneath, with lots of dry leaves and needles. They were all feeding actively, the 2 hens sheperding them along and the male keeping a close eye on the surrounding area. If I decided to take them from the hens and put them in a brooder, it will have to be in the next day or so. How do I catch them? I am worried about stressing them out, scattering the flock and not being able to find them, leaving them to the predators here near the farm. Most predators don't get too close due to the 3 guard dogs that have adopted my place as an extension of their own, but a lone chick wouldn't have a chance. Would it be better to allow the moms a chance to raise them? I have their last brood, now reaching 10 weeks old and just ready to leave the brooder box I was keeping them in. I can't believe they had a brood this late in the year...I don't think they will survive the cold weather that will be here in another 6 or 7 weeks. I might be able to herd them into the large barn and keep them there with the hens, or lure them in by putting down chick starter. Any suggestions?
