    Good luck, I'd think it would be better than having a guinea keet all by itself.

    I raised a guinea keet with chicks before. Worked great, except the guinea grew up thinking it was a chicken, LOL.

    I'd try putting him in with the chicks. Better in with them than raised alone. Just keep an eye on him, make sure he's not getting picked on by the chicks.

    Love your avatar pic BTW!!! :)

    Thanks. I put the little guy in with the chicks this morning. He's doin good, as a bit of a attitude towards the bigger chicks. There like 3 times as big as he is, it's so funny he's the one picking on the other ones lol. I raised the heat lamp lower so they wouldn't cluster up and smother the little guy. Hope he lives he's so cute. I keep sayin he but it could be a she lol. I take a picture for you guys tommorow.
