Keets growing up

| | Comments (0) | TrackBacks (0)

Back in September, I found a bunch of keets among the guineas. They had surreptitiously sat on a nest out in the horse pasture and hatched several keets. Because it was so late in the season, and because guineas are not the best mothers, I took the keets and set up a brooder for them. They have been in the brooder (actually a rabbit hutch) under lights ever since.

Well, it is time for them to graduate to the big outside coop. I chased all the chickens out and put just the guineas (well, and that one little bantam that hatched at about the same time) into the coop with water and food and closed the door.

Within minutes, all the grown up guineas were on the outside of the coop looking in, they are seriously communicating with the nearly grown keets, and once I'm sure the keets know that the coop is home for good, I'll open the door and let them hang out with the rest of the guineas.

The hen house has plenty of room for the chickens I kicked out of the coop, so I'm confident everyone will have a roost tonight.

Thanks, Ashes!

And I am extremely thankful for my dear daughter-in-law, Ashley. Ashes and Miles (our grandson) farm sat for us for 10 days so John and I could go AWOL on a cruise in the Caribbean.

She did a fantastic job. All animals were not only alive, but thriving.

And, she has a really good blog, Domestic Chaos. You should bookmark her and read her regularly.

Thanks, Ashes!

Are almost 2 weeks old and are climbing out of their nest box in search of their mom - who cowers in a corner hoping for a bit of a rest between feedings.

I can tell that Jodie is doing a good job as a mama - the five kits are fat and sassy!!

Here is a photo of one of the wee ones:
