New Guinea Keets

Six new little guinea keets.
On Sunday we picked up 6 guinea fowl keets. They're a week old.
We got two lavenders, one pearl, one white, and two pied, or multi-colored. They should make a nice-looking, tick-destroying flock. :)
They will free-range, so the entire area (plus our neighbors) should see a drastic decline in insect and tick populations by this time next year.
The plan is to build some permanent housing by the garden so they start off and finish each day eating bugs through the garden and orchard.
No names as of yet. I need to be able to distinguish them a bit better first.
So excited! I've wanted them for two years now. I'm so glad things are finally rolling for us.
God is good!
