My guineas have been hiding out in an evergreen tree for 3 DAYS since the ground got covered in 3 inches of snow capped by a half inch of ice. They are so terrified, they have not come down ONCE for food and water. I tried to chase them out but they just go deeper in the tree. I put food and water right under the tree, but no go. Now I'm afraid they're going to starve to death in there. Does anyone know how long they can go without food/water???? I thought they would get hungry and thirsty enough to come down themselves, but I'm being to wonder..... Should I go with a ladder and try to drag them out? Which is not easy -- for those of you with guineas, they are strong little buggers and I've got scars on my arms to prove it. By the way, they've never slept outside EVER. They always go in the chicken coop at night. It's 15 degrees outside. They can fly, I don't know why they don't just fly into the coop!
