For errant Guineas to show up in everyone's flocks. A few minutes ago I looked out of the window sans glasses and thought one of my lavenders looked awfully dark. I found my glasses put them on and went, huh. Put my boots on and walked outside to get a closer look. Its a royal purple. Some weeks ago I had been seeing a pair on the side of the road about three miles from here. Of course the thought was that was not going to last long. Since then I've seen no signs of either of them. This is a young bird and from what I heard this morning I thought it was female but the body says male. My flock doesn't seem to care all that much about its being here which is a surprise. For now its in the only empty pen I have which was in reserve for a hen on a nest. I should be able to turn it out about the same time the keets hatch and I can install Momma and her keets in there.
