    I just got an email from a friend that I gave my 6 Guinneas to. He had a total of 11 Guinneas and gave them to 2 friends who live a little distance apart. Well today the Guinneas came back to my friends home, which is about 2 mi. away. Not only did the original 11 return home, they brought 7 more with them:lau [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]. This has got me laughing, I can't stop!!!! So it sure is true, they find their way back home.

    That IS Funny, bet they'll travel back and forth if you let them, the ones from the friend's will want to go back, and bring them all, then they'll go to the other house... it'll be the "Traveling Guinnea Gang" !

    Quote:It's always best to blindfold guineas when moving them to a new home. You should also make a lot of turns and backtrack a bit on the way. It will confuse them. [​IMG]

    Quote:I never even thought about them going back and forth. Now that would be funny!!! Especially if the "Travelling Guinnea Gang" grew in numbers!!!
     
  5. I was always told to take ALL your Guineas to a new place and keep them in the dark without a view of the outside world. Then when you get them to the new location you are suppose to keep them locked up for 4 weeks before you let them out.

    HMMM,
    I wonder if they are like my grandkids? They go between my house and their other grandparents house and hit us both up for the "good" snacks. [​IMG]

    Oh, that's hysterical that they even brought their new pals along! [​IMG]

    The new ones must have really wondered where they were going, on that road trip! What an adventure!
