The Guinea Fowl Keets are Here

This year’s brood of guinea fowl keets have arrived and are growing steadily in their brooding box. They’ll be in the brooding box for a month before we let them loose on the the grounds. These guinea fowl are ornamental but they also help to keep the pests down, especially ticks, which is always a plus.
