    Yesterday I bough two 5 or 6 week old lavender guinea fowl keets and they escaped. They flew away but I saw them in my yard this morning. Then they went to my neighbours yard again and I want to know how to get them back.
    Any help please?

    Put some feed out and see if you can lure them into a coop. It you do catch them, lock them up in the coop for a few weeks so they think of it as home. Mine usually went in the coop at night but sometimes they would sleep outside in a tree.

    The neighbours yard is so bushy and I can't see them. I'm not sure how far they went but I'm about to play some cheeping sounds to see if they will come back to that.

    Good luck. Remember guineas are really wild and have a mind of their own for the most part.

    The neighbours found them and they're back!
