I'm a mumma..........

after all the thoughts of wether we did or didn't have a male ginea fowl well clearly we must................AND finally we have baby keets........yes guinea fowl babies are called keets...........
This is mumma yesterday........pretty much the view from my lounge......
this morning the guinea fowl were carring on crazy and I looked out and saw mumma was not on the nest and I saw little things moving OMG OMG OMG............
the guinea fowl were carrying on as there was a kookaburra and butcher bird hanging around.........
the 3 other guinea fowl were hanging around to help protect the babies..........
They have hatched 10 babies.........we caught Mumma and all the babies.......1 went under the house......1 was pretty flat so when we caught the one from under the house we kept it with the flat one...........Fairy Girl is playing mother today but we will probably keep them in a box  with a heat light.......if we couldn't catch mumma we were going to raise the keets but Mumma was super protective and wanted to kill us so we were able to catch her in a net and put her and the babies in a cage.............
I'll try and get another pic for you of the babies.............
Catch you later.......
