|Guineas on top of the brooder house|
When it comes to the guineas being separated from one another, they cannot seem to figure out how to go around fences or doors in order to be together again!
Also, not so many guineas any more as we lost 2 (during the night) to predators the week before Christmas. The remaining 3 must be the ones with survival skills because they have not returned to the tree from which the 2 dearly departed were taken and now sleep in the large hen-a-bago with the Rhode Island Reds and Partridge Rocks. During the day they roam about the farm and, alas, the neighbor's yard. As the sun begins to set they head back to the roosts inside hen-a-bago 2. We haven't lost any more so it seems to be a plan that's working for them--and for us. We like these goofy looking (and acting), noisy, tick-eating guys or gals--we still are not sure what we have.
