    My Pearl Grey Guinea Keets are only 6 days old and they have their main wing feathers almost formed. They are also trying to fly, so If anyone could tell me about the age they start to fly would be great.

    By 2 weeks old, if they are on high protein feed and feathering out at the normal rate keets feather out they will be able to fly well enough to get out of the brooder and up on roosts, in the rafters, trees etc.
