It is so funny! I have not had Guineas in all the years I have had chickens and ducks. However, a friend wanted me to hatch eggs for her since she would like some and wanted to possibly sell a few extra. She brought me 5 dz Guinea eggs to set and said I could keep half if I wanted from the hatch. So yeah, I thought that would be okay. Now almost 3 weeks into incubation and I spot a Guinea out behind my barn! Big, beautiful fella. (Gosh what a fast hatch and growth!) Obviously, one of the neighbor's thought to try a hand at Guineas and he escaped or they did not know enough and just let him go. I have not heard any Guineas in our community in over 20 years. How far would one roam if it was let loose or escaped from a new home? Miles? I do not plan to advertize that he showed up. I am assuming he came here because of all the fowl I have roaming the farm. I think he is beautiful so he can stay as long as he likes! Freaked out my horse, LGD, ducks and chickens though! LOL This morning when I went down to let everyone out he was in the duck pen, probably getting water and grain that I leave out. He immediately flew over the fence and headed into the woods. Do I just let him do his thing? I would think he was lonely and the keets will not be old enough for a long while to give him any company. I plan to brooder raise them as long as I can so they will return each night to roost in the coop. Hawks and Owls would surely get them at night with the woods right behind the barn. I appreciate any info you all can give me since I am a newbie to Guinea fowl.
