Well, I kept them locked up for about a week and the day I let them out they ended up at the neighbor's again. I guess guineas just don't like being in a flock as small as 5 birds...but I'm a bit surprised that the neighbor's big flock of 30-35 birds were so accepting. I went over to find them...and there they were (he doesn't have any Royal Purple and even though they harass the little pearl it sticks with them even at the neighbor's). Anyhow, I ran by on Sunday morning but the neighbor wasn't at home. I was heading out of town that day for a week. I found my birds but couldn't round them up in the front yard and didn't want to be running around in his barn and field uninvited. I'll just have to go back after vacation. My new plan will be to lock them up until my keets are big enough to put in the loft (I have to fix up an adjoining area so they can be separated yet seen for a while before I put them all together). Hopefully once we have a flock of 46 these 5 will stick around and help keep the new birds out of trouble watching for hawks and dogs instead of rejoining the neighbor's flock.
