Cackle Hatchery® is one of the few hatcheries that will ship just a few baby keets to you. It is more expensive to buy them in small numbers causing us to spend time and materials with the extras it takes for us to package them so they are warm and safe during shipping. We don’t recommend guineas for small back yards or with close neighbors but are great for homesteads because they love to roam. They really stay together as a flock and get very upset if they get separated. They can glide fly for a ways and fly to the top of trees. If you must pen them you can clip one wing and leave the other wing unclipped so when they try to fly they turn and learn real quick and they don’t like that. They are however low cost low maintenance and great alternative to chemical pest control.
