KEET CARE SHEET

"Keets are young Guineas"

 

SPACE:

Try to provide 1/2 SQR FT per keet at the start. A nice sized brooder 2ft x 3 or 4ft is perfect to start with.  More space needed with larger quantities...

They can or will be jumping, allow 18in to 24in height on brooder.

Feed

Each of these birds should be started on a 28-30% Turkey Starter or Game bird feed.

If neither of these feeds can be found, they can be started on 20-22% Chick Starter. At 8 weeks of age, switch them from Game bird/Turkey Starter to an 18-20% Grower.

As you might expect, going with the higher protein feeds will speed the growth of these types of fowl. However, if they are not available, the Chick Starter and Grower feeds will do the job for you.

Important

That Guineas be kept out of the waterers. If you experience the birds getting into the waterers and getting soaked, place some small rocks or marbles in the drinkers. This will normally solve the problem.

LITER WARNING:

  • Do not use cedar or cypress shavings as they are highly toxic to poultry.
  • Do not use small shavings or saw dust because the baby chicks learning to eat will eat it. 
  • Do not use sand as it will cause health problems.
