MeliaMary’s Guinea Fowl Keets Try To Free Range

I love it when I strike up a farmingfriends friendship and get to correspond with a fellow guinea fowl enthusiast as MeliaMary is.

It is also interesting to hear about guinea fowl in different countries and MeliaMary is over in Australia, so lets find out how MeliaMary’s guinea fowl keets are progressing……

Today is the day I am allowing the keets to free range. The gate is open but so far they are not inclined to venture out.

The temperature here is mid to high 20s during the day so I am comfortable letting them out and I feel sure they are ready.

I have written a report on the forum.  

How interesting it is to read about Mary-Jayne’s keets in South Africa.  

And also hearing about the smallholding in Cyprus is fascinating. I have English friends who have bought a property in Cyprus. I wonder if they are neighbours!  

My fingers are nearly better now. Have dressing on only one of them so I am able to type again.

And I have just about got over the deaths of Lambchop and Rosie but I have to confess that I went into a deep decline after that happened and it took me a good few tearful days to get back to near normal.  

All the best
