5 to 7

Our farm wannabe picked up 2 new additions on Wednesday....two guinea keets. This is a first for us. We raised our other guineas from day old chicks. These guys (well, hopefully they are females) are about 7 weeks old. They are a gift from our neighbours.The keets are about 1/4 the size of our other guineas.In about one year they will look as handsome as this guy:
So far everything is going well. The big guineas don't bother the little ones too much. And the little ones are learning that they have to eat quickly, or they won't get anything at all! So now we have 7 guineas, and hopefully they all survive until the spring when they'll have to go back to work to earn their keep.
