My sweet guinea girl made herself a nest. She is sitting on 20 eggs. 20. yikes, i foolishly didnt even know she was laying! She did a good job finding a spot that is hidden and hard to get to for her nest....the problem is....its in my nieghbors yard. we have a chain link fence seperating the properties. I don't know these nieghbors at all, which makes it even more complicated. My husband went and tried to move her to see if her could move the nest and she wasnt having any part of it.
We really need her and the nest / or the soon-to-come keets to be over on our property. (who seriously lives in a neighborhood and owns guineas anyhow?! we are so dumb!! )
I have no idea what to do.
SHould I try to move the nest when she gets up to eat and drink? - my guess is no?
Can I move her and the keets over to our yard once they hatch? or is she going to go balistic on me if I try to move them? I would really like to try and move the whole nest and her into a safe spot before they hatch.....but she isn't exactly what I'd call friendly :) I have to try and do something because I certainly can't have 22 Guinea's trolling the neighborhood!
Dose anyone have any advice.....
Or am I out of luck? And need to prepare myself for being run out of town by angry neighbors with pitch forks?
