There's always something going on around here. When the local feed and seed notified us that they were able to get some Guinea Keets we reserved ten. Picked those up yesterday morning, then went back yesterday afternoon and got seven more.
We're getting our Guinea flock back up to 20+ like we've always had. These little creatures are going to grow up to be the best pest control service you can pay for with chicken feed. They will eat all day, any bug in the grass plus the bigger things like lizards and snakes. Well worth having around.
Yes they are loud especially when there's a bunch of them. Yes they roam the woods and travel to nearby homes feasting off of their land too. Something happens when you explain that they are eating the rodents and snakes, the neighbors decide they like them too.
Aren't they adorable? Cute little thangs! Matthew built this smaller pen on high legs so they are way off the ground. Then we put this inside the large chicken yard so everything and everyone is locked up tight each evening. We do have those pesky little fox and cats you know, along with the coons and during the day hawks fly over sometimes looking for an easy catch.
