Our first batch of French Guinea keets arrived yesterday! All 50 tiny babies arrived doing great, and quickly settled in to their brooders. Took a lot of peeping on their part and fine tuning of heat lamps on mine before they settled in cozy. I will keep you updated on this new venture here at the farm!
