Today we went to the farmer's market and got nine day-old guinea keets!
We were told their colors were chocolate, coral blue and one white one, straight run. The white one is on the bottom left in the above picture.
They were very lively when we got them, but by the time they got home they were all tuckered out and wanted to sleep.
We gave the guinea keets to the hen Bella to raise. Bella has been broody for many months now, and has been sitting on a clutch of chicken eggs for the past week.
Bella had no problem accepting the guinea keets as hers. We started by giving her one, then slowly added the rest to her nest. They haven't left the nest box yet, everyone is sleeping.
We gave Bella's eggs to Zoner. She tucked the additional eggs up underneath her.
Here is Zoner sitting on all the eggs now.
Sleeping keets and proud chicken mama.
