Guinea Fowl Crystal Sexing
Kasey and I did the sexing test of the guinea fowl keets today, by holding a string with a crystal over each one, to see if it went in a circular or back and forth motion. According to this test, we have 2 boys and 4 girls, so we will see how accurate this test is once they grow up a little bit more. The girls definitely seem quieter and more petite than the boys, so it will be interesting to see how this goes. The boys carry on much more when picked up, whereas the girls are happy to just be held quietly...they have grown up so much in just a couple of weeks, they would be double and in some cases triple the size they were when bought home.
