[​IMG] [​IMG]). 3-4 guineas are in a locust tree along with my peachick. the peachick is the highest in the tree so she is really the safest but then again none of them are safe w/ all the predators. please pray for them that they will all make it tonight.

    Sending guinea and peachick prayers your way. I completely understand the fear. I lost my roo to an attack in the coop last week and every night since at least one hen roosted in a tree and never was heard from again. Last night, none of the chickens would go back in and all were super high up in the trees. I didn't sleep at all last night listening for chicken noises and preparing to assist with fire power if necessary. We lost one hen. They don't feel safe in the coop, they definately aren't safe outside the coop. I believe in every animal's right to life, but when a pred threatens my chickens I find it hard to let them live.
