    Thinking as I type here ... if he is determined to stick around and you can't catch him to de-lice him ... is there a liquid de-licer or similar concentrated liquid available? (I use powder, so no idea).

    You could fill up one of those super-soaker, giant water pistols with some and dose him from a distance?

    SCG have you forgotten our friend "google,?" it has provided good info for my very odd questions, surely there is an answer to your floating strawberries. I'mheaded there now to find out about net guns.

    I use Frontline for the flock, but you have to get it on the skin.

    I was hoping he would go to roost with the flock tonight. He did... 30 feet above the coop in the trees. [​IMG]

    google had many cures for floating strawberries apparently it is mucho common.


    I came away from the videos on net guns with the feeling it was way overkill, even for a guinea that deserves it.

    Net guns - great if you want to catch a flock of wild turkeys.

    Scg: ur guinea problem seems exactly like my mother-in-law problem. She shows up at the worst times, brings a bunch of garage sale junk, and ends up costing me at least $25 each time. I wish i could use a net gun on her..but she would fly away...on her broom
