    I recently moved to central MA and am looking to buy some keets to help control insects issues here. Perfer (sorry new to poultry) females if possible- 3 or 4 keets. Willing to travel some.

    I have 10 eggs in the incubator. I can't tell the sex until they get large enough to make their calling noise.

    How long do they take to hatch? How long do they take to do there calling noise? I may just take them straight run. I was reading that its best to have them as young as possible to prevent them from flying off once let out of the coop.

    THEY TAKE ABOUT 26-28 DAYS TO HATCH.

    and they will start making trademark noise within a month or so. then you will know, they can get loud, i have several, they are neat birds, you will enjoy them if you can take the noise

    Is there a minimal amount of property one should own to consider a Guinea because of noise factor?

    listen guineas are not as loud as people say i have five acres and the stay around it and not loud unless something strange comes around and you will never have a tick or bugs again, but get smalls to raise and they will stay right around your area
