Already! Two little guinea chicks showed up at feeding time in the middle of the guinea herd!
Only two? She had about ten eggs in her nest even after the close call with the tractor, but I checked it out, and there were two empty shells, and four intact eggs. Maybe something happened, she rolled out a few eggs or something stole a few.
Then HW came home, discovered the new additions, and said “did you see the three new chicks?”
Three!? Sure enough, there was a latecomer. Easy to tell which one. Just a few hours made the original two old hands at life. The late arrival was shaky and slow and having a hard time navigating uneven terrain and obstacles.
Mama isn’t as crazy as she used to be either. She let me pick one up.
