I bought them to keep the snake and tick population down. I hope they survive as free rangers. The coyotes out here were LOUD last night. May my guineas roost in many a tall tree. I have one crippled guinea I just couldn't cull. She has one backwards leg that does not function at all. She drags herself around. I was going to cull her last week, but I have been so sick, and she is such a lovely girl, I have lost my nerve. When I opened the run, the other 3 took off and left her behind. She is hanging out in the garden. Maybe nature will take its course? I feel bad for her. She is lonely, but what can I do? Do I cull her or let her be lonely? What would you do? It is a tough one for me.
