I have a story about my two hatches of guineas, 1. hatched in incubater July 15 this year no. 2 hatched under my red sex linked hen that went broody. The first hatch I raised under a light in my brooder then I moved the 7 guineas to a large pen I have had to raise young fowl in. Then the red hwn hatched 7 Keets on August 26. I place her and her chicks in the pen with the incubater keets. Everthing was fine and when the Red hen's keets were 6 weeks old she started laying eggs again so I remove her to the Hen pen and things started going down hill from there. The old guineas picked on the younger keets and that grew worse every day in attemp to stop the fighting I turned the whole crew out 2 days ago. The older guineas took to the out side world fine and most of the picking on the little guys stopped because they had more room to flee. The younger keets spent the day running around the red hen pen trying to get into the pen. I was unable to get any guineas back in the guinea pen that night. They all roosted on top of my covered hen pen that night. Yesterday I found the older keets wanting in the guinea pen to eat and I drove them in with out any trouble but the younger keets were running around the hen pen screaming bloody murder wanting in there. I knew they were hungry and thought I will let them in with the hens and they can eat then I supposed the hens would pick on the young keets so I figured I would drive the keets back out. I was amazed to find the guineas and my red hens didn't fight and the keets think all the red hens are their mama. I have decided to leave the younger keets in the hen pen to see what develops and the older keets will go out in the morning and back in the guinea pen in the evening to eat and roost. I would like to have the 14 guineas merge into one flock by spring but I wonder if this is possible with the two different hatches and the younger flock thinking they are chickens? what do you think I should do with these strange birds?
