Well, I don't have proof that it was even a dog much less whose dog...but I'm pretty sure it was at least SOME dog. Anyhow, this morning I checked the loft and 5 of the young Jumbo/French guineas were back in the loft. The neighbor said that my birds left his place this morning but they hadn't shown up at my place either. This evening I waited around to see if my birds would show up and as the sun was setting (it was too cloudy to see but it was "sunset") I could hear guineas making a racket at the neighbor's so I drove over. On the way I saw one of my little violet guineas on a driveway that basically runs the whole distance to the neighbor's. I got out and was going to try and heard it to my house but saw a good size flock of my birds at the neighbor's so I herded it over to his place. There were my 5 older birds (one pearl and five Royal Purple) and with the little violet guinea a total of 7 younger birds. He said that there had been about 15 younger birds there the night before and I wonder if they were headed back to their home and the little violet guinea was trying to decide which half of the group to follow. Anyway, the older birds headed right for the neighbor's barn but the young birds were headed back to my place. I was going to herd them along but the neighbor pointed out that it was almost dark so we herded them into his barn. Sadly, not long does his barn not close up (no solid doors) but I'm going out of town early in the morning and I'll be gone for 3 days. I hope either he catches them for me or they come home. The missing guineas did not show up at my place and must be roosting in the woods. I'll let you all know what happens. Meanwhile, I hatched out 18 baby chicks in my new incubator. They are just barnyard chickens because the eggs were cheap and I was trying to calibrate the incubator. I don't plan on keeping the chicks but they sure are calm and tame compared to keets.
