Yesterday I noticed a new guinea visitor hanging around with the chickens. I could tell he wasn't from around here due to his unique markings. Have you ever seen a guinea with a dark body and a white under belly?
Kia and Ava were intrigued, as was Lucy who decided to spend some time eating lunch with the handsome stranger.
Lara and Zoe took some time away from eating to watch him as well. On a side note Lara and Zoe love watching the chickens and guineas. When the fowl get close to them they actually wag their tails and just stare and stare.
The new guy likes to live dangerously as he spends his nights out in the trees. No one around us has guineas so I have no idea where he came from. The other guinea boys don't like him very much and try to run him off but I think he misses his own kind. I hope he tames up enough to decide to join the others in the safety of the coop at night.

I live in NE Minnesota on 10 wooded acres with; my best friend Mocha, three dogs, chickens, Guinea Hens, Nigerian Dwarf Goats, Cascade Sheep, Icelandic sheep, and a few humans.
When we moved here it was completely wooded, our plan is to turn this property into a working homestead.
