    I am getting some two week old keets today, I've read extensively about taking care of them but thought I would get some advice here as well on how best to take care of them.

    I wish I had advice. I wanted guineas so bad but the eggs I incubated didnt hatch. Out of the 13 eggs I bought online only 4 were actually fertile and of those they were shaken to bady by the postal service. Maybe next year I'll try again.

    Well I got them, six of them in various colors. They seem to be doing fine, gave them food and water. Took awhile for them to come out of the box I brought them in but they are exploring now.

    Going to move them into the yard tomorrow with the coop.

    I don't know where you're located, but they probably won't need any extra heat in the type weather we've been having. The main thing is to make sure they stay dry. They can get wet in the morning dew and up to about a month of age, can catch a chill very easy.
