Hi everyone!I wanted to get some advice if I could. I added a smiley face, but I'm not very happy. We've been letting our chickens and guineas free range for almost 3 yrs with no problems except a cat wandered in one day and killed one of my favorite hens. We kept them locked up after that for a few days until we caught it. Well that was a year ago. Now all of a sudden we have quite a few hawks. We didn't know what was getting our hens , they got five of them out of our 15. We kept them locked up for a few days and the guineas were going nuts, (I think they must have had nests) and the hawks hadn't been around so I let them out one morning about a week ago. Well that was the stupidest thing I could have ever done! They got my very best pet hen and my beautiful rooster! I am just sick about it and can't stop thinking about it. Well I know no one can help me with my extreme guilt but my question is,should we try to figure a way to let the guineas out? They are going nuts, the chickens don't seem to mind being cooped up. We have a small enclosed place connected to their coop. and are in the process of maker it about another size bigger, But the guineas don't seem to be adapting well. Is it cruel to keep them locked up? Which is crueler? Locking them up or letting the hawks get them? Please help me decide I am so frustrated!
