Keets Raised By A Hen

Keets raised by a guinea fowl hen or another hen that has hatched the eggs, require very little management at the early stages of life as the hen will take care of most of the needs of the keets. The hen will keep the keets warm and protected as the keets tend to remain under the hen until their bodies have dried and they have the strength to move about. It is still important to make sure that the keets have access to water and food, which should be kept close to the hen’s nesting area.
