Six of the seven guinea hen eggs in the in incubator hatched so instead of moving them to the garage I gave to mamma chicken. I moved mamma chicken, her two chicks and the six guineas all out to the new chicken brooder house to give them some privacy away from the other birds - safety for the little ones.
Unfortunately one of the keets didn't survive the first day but everyone else is doing great.
Last year one of the chickens raised a batch of keets and it turned out great. The predators surrounding this place have taken four guineas so far this year (three females) so I may need to keep some of these, hopefully a few are female.
I am an Ocicat. My duties include; security (rodents), counter intelligence (predators), infiltration (sneaking) and night surveillance.
I live in NE Minnesota on 10 wooded acres with; my best friend Mocha, three dogs, chickens, Guinea Hens, Nigerian Dwarf Goats, Cascade Sheep, Icelandic sheep, and a few humans.
When we moved here it was completely wooded, our plan is to turn this property into a working homestead.
