I found another Guinea nest deep in the woods the other day. Today, the hen went broody so I waited until dark to go and get her. It was very dark and i did not want to scare her; I had marked my paces so I would be able to tell where I was in the woods without using the flashlight. Imagine my surprise when I reached down, switched on the light and there was about a 6 foot gray rat snake in the nest eating eggs & NO GUINEA! How far would she scatter in the woods? How do I find her in pitch dark? Would she had flown up in the trees (they are dense out there) Another nest closer to home & I thought safer, 2 Guinea hebs had taken up on the nest- something got in the nest and ate about a dozen scattering shells == the Guineas were still there. My dog can't cross to this nest but can get close enough to scare off most critters And I have a third nest in a great place, right up next to the house under my bedroom window so I am leaving that one.
