It's been terribly difficult to enclose the guineas in the evening for bed. If I don't round them into their pen before 8pm, they perch so high it's impossible to reach them. Unfortunately, last night I came home after 9 pm and the guineas were perched. I awoke this morning to silence and knew this was a bad sign. The buggers are usually non stop chatterers. So I jumped out of bed and hurried outside only to discover polka dotted feathers strewn all over, three guineas missing, and one pitiful guinea horribly injured. The remaining guineas huddled around quietly and remained silent throughout the morning and afternoon. They're not foraging, eating, drinking or moving. They have remained stationary in a small corner of the yard, almost as if they're waiting for the other three to come home. Can this be so? Or are they so spooked from last night that they can't muster the energy to move?
