    I FOUND A NEST!!!! And it's about 10ft from my back door [​IMG]
    I've spent years searching for a guinea nest and have never found one. Our guineas have a huge area they cover around here and I figured it was impossible to find one, they are master hiders.
    A storm blew in a few weeks ago and the wind broke one of those big pet barn dog houses in half and we can only find the top, so it's been sitting out back waiting to be tossed out. I just happened to see one of my lav girls duck back under a it this morning, after I threw out some scratch and thought hmmm?....so I go get a flashlight and bust her!

    Funny thing is....I've not only got a broody lavender guinea hen sitting on it, but a broody banty hen sitting with her [​IMG] Silly girls!
     
  2. LOL. Funny birds. Let us know what they manage to hatch!
