Every nest my guineas hae been invaded and eatin. They have had a total of..............28 nests! And i only have 9 hens. I dont no what but it is probably a oppsum or a coon. Maybe a skunk.....but i hope not. Well what ever it is it has eating every nest. So since i wanted to hatch eggs and sell eggs----and every nest was disapearing i pinnedthem in the front yard with my chickens. And they made one nest right by the hen house then when a hen started setting they made another by th fence in a bush. Well i candled her eggs 2 days ago they were all fertile....but one baby died. So that made 16 eggs, Then this morning. I went out there and something had killed and ate 6 of the babies! and the were so close to hatching . I put them in the yard to prevent that. Both of the hens were fine though. So tonight i am goig to watch the nest. Idk what i'm going to do. Tell me what you think about this idea i have or if you have any suggestions. My idea: When i close my chickens and guineas in at dark i will take the eggs with babies and put them in the bator----then put rotten eggs in the nest. Just in case. Then ill put a small fence around mama guinea. Then i have a bunch of pins i wil put a pin open with some eggs in it. I will watch from the front porch or kitchen window. Then when the animal goes in i will shut the door. And depending on the time go get my dad or wait till morning and shoot it. I hope its a oppsum. Raccoons are agressive. But a oppsum easy to handle. The pins are long enough that is can safetly shut the door they are about 9ft long.
