Now There are Two

Now there are two. . .
Our guinea population has been reduced in size yet again. A week ago today we lost our 4th guinea--the first to a vehicle rather than a predator.  At first the two remaining guineas seemed to be mourning, wandering around & aimlessly chirping for their flockmate, but they seem to settling down to be a flock of two. It has been quite an experience starting with six keets (the name for a baby guinea), watching them grow, and interact with the chickens. We haven't even had them a year yet; when we do acquire more keets, we'll begin with about twice as many and hope to have more survivors.  Maybe these two will still be here to instruct the young ones.
