Guinea Fowl Keets

Since Sunday 15 guinea fowl keets have successfully hatched out. I generally leave the keets in the incubator for 24 hours so that their feathers can dry out and they can fluff up. It is ok to leave them in the incubator for this length of time as they get their food from the sac. After about 24 hours I transfer the keets to a brooder where they have heat, chick crumbs and water. I usually put marbles in the drinker so that the keets don’t drown in the water. The floor of the brooder has corrugated cardboard and straw on it. This helps the keets to move about the brooder safely and the non-slip flooring stops the keets from getting splayed legs.
