    I had 6 guineas 5 males, 1 hen couple days ago I woke up and my hen was killed by a coon in her nest. Next Morning my males looked in nest and ran off into woods i manged to save 1 male, he was the biggest. These guineas were my daughters pets and nowevryday she has been walking into woods looking for her baby Theodore (name she gave to a short chunky one she called her baby). Meanwhile Simon the one we have left sits in pen lonely. I over hear my daughter tell him his brother Theodore will be back he is lost. My daughters sits at window all the time staring into woods hoping lil Theodore will be back. I know he will never return been almost a week and he didnt fly very well. I have been suffering watching my daughter and I beg anyone that can sell me an adult female or 2 so i can help her get over lil Theodore or lead me to someone Please. I live in Central Fl Near Deland and will gladly pick up if not too far. Thanks
