I had a Dawn sighting tonight! She is alive and I am sure now that she has a nest somewhere.
She came to the poultry feeder at about 5 pm and was gobbling down chicken scratch in a big hurry. By the time we finished evening milk chores she was gone again.
I'll see if I can follow her back to the nest sometime if I get a chance - we still have no idea where it is, but I have a few thoughts. We have some areas with tall grass and weeds that I bet would be a nice spot to hide eggs.
Guineas are, reportedly, not the best moms -- we'll see how this all goes. I am really hoping we get at least a couple live keets. Yay, Dawn!
Hmmm. Where to Start?
