    Hi, a family friend couldn't keep her guineas any longer due to moving. So we were given two of them, I believe they are pearl gray, one male and female. A month ago, the female went missing. We were afraid one of the many predators that live near us could have gotten her. But then we would see her every once in a blue moon! Couldn't figure out where she was hiding. Well....guess what we found two days ago. In the middle of the overgrown tigerlilies behind the house was the guinea. And beside her, a little baby keet! Unfortunately, we have to rehome the adults. They are fine with all my chicken but one, the male has a death wish for my poor barred rock. I took the keet and put her in the brooder with the rest of my chicks. Is it possible to tame this baby? I have a feeling she's just gonna get wild like her parents but thought i'd ask!

    If its a male chances are good the same thing will happen again with your rooster. If its a female it will settle in with them.
