I have a 12 ga, or a 17 cal. I plan to use to catch my guineas when I get enough to eat. Those planning on Guineas must know one thing, They make a flock of crowing roosters, and a pack of braying wolves sound quiet. I do not want my guineas in the chicken coop anymore, they cause too much trouble! I run them out a couple times a week. BUT right now I am etting them stay until the Guinea Gulag is complete, then they will move in the dead of the night. Pen G injection, hmmm. While we seem to have stopped Bert from getting worse, his foot does not seem to be getting better. I know I am grasping at straws but I will try anything and everything. I even, heaven help me, thought of taking him to the vet, but I know my vet will think I have went over the edge. Besides, DW may not go for spending a few hundred on Bert. Sorry to hear about your CL BogtownChick... I am down to three eggs that may have a chance, but I doubt it. The one I patched and two others. I wish I knew what I was doing wrong. We have 9 guineas right now, I have 3 eggs in the incubator, They are crossing the road now to an over grown field . I am going to hunt for eggs there when the weather gets better. It is so hard to find nests!
