I have a pair of guineas who are about a year old now. They are always together. I was out with them about 10 am and they were running around together chasing chickens in the barn. This afternoon, at about 5 pm, the female returned to the pen alone. We went and looked around for the male, but there is no trace of him. There is just an area under a bush where I can see they were taking a dust bath earlier, but no obvious disturbance. About a week ago one of our chickens went missing the same way - middle of the day, no noise, no trace. I really thought the guineas were too fast to be taken by a predator in the middle of the day. I don't see any tracks, no feathers, nothing. My husband was around all day and he did not hear anything out of the ordinary, either. I am just really surprised that something could sneak up on him and drag him off without a trace - they are so loud and nervous! What do you think it is?
