    same thing happened last year too. a stray guinea has taken up in my yard and is hanging around with my ducks & geese. last year it was a stray rooster ( wellsummer) doesn't seem to want to do anything more then hang out when then birds are out of the barn during the day. My son keeps chasing it over the fence thinking its the neighbors. I dunno? if I can get a pic I will. what do they eat besides bugs?

    They will eat weed seeds, tender young plants, bugs and preferably a game bird feed with a higher protein than your chickens eat.

    This makes a whole bunch of people that have had a stray Guinea show up on their places. As many years as I've had these guys I don't think I've seen this many people have a stray bird show up at their places in one season.
