    Lilac is the lavender guinea hen. She is under a pile of brush where I've been sneaking eggs off. Til yesterday. She's been staying late into the evening. She was there when I checked at 9:30 tonight. I'd think it was really neat if I hadn't promised people eggs. And she is so cute sitting there being a broody guinea. [​IMG]

    Gigi, the pearl guinea may have changed locations. My mom thinks she saw her headed somewhere.

    I got the first 3 sets off to the winners and will send the others as soon as I can find where Gigi is laying. I hope that if trouble comes Lilac will sound the alarm and Emmett (her mate) and the others will come out to protect her. She's pretty well hidden. I'd have never found it if I hadn't seen 2 guinea hens in there.

    HENS!!!! [​IMG]
