Yep, guinea fowl are prone to wander lust. It's just in their nature to break away from the brood and roam. He/she probably belongs to one of your neighbors. They also aren't noted for their intelligence. They ARE excellent egg layers and one of the best tasting.

i think your visitor is a male because of the large wattles[ those things on each side of the beak] the female has smaller ones.they love high places and are very vocal especially the female. great watchdogs!!!!

Good to eat , we were given one by a farmer friend ,we plucked it and put it in the freezer ,we then gave another friend what we thought was a pheasant from the freezer we found out after some time we had given them the Guinea Fowl by mistake , we never did taste it ...
