Help. I have 14 guineas who are 8 weeks of age. They were in the coop for the entire duration of brooding so they were comfy in their home. We let them out for the first time last night just close to dark, since I read this is the best time to let them out to start. Well, as soon as we let them out they took off. We tried to herd them...that went badly. They spent the night sleeping in my yard. Every time we tried to capture them they were running into the woods so we just let them be. This morning they were down by my mailbox and now they are gone. I have tried ringing a treat bell they are accustomed to. No luck. Do you think they will come home or are they gone forever? My first time at having guineas is not going as planned. They have always been a wild bunch. I was afraid of this happening and well, the worst has come true.
