I had gotten my first 4 Guineas several years ago. I loved those foolish things but I lost them all to an owl. Ok, I lost 3 of them to an owl and the 4th escaped to the wild, hatched a clutch of chicks that got eaten by fox. Anyway, I am getting either 4 or 6 4 week old chicks tomorrow! I have the area all ready for them, they will be penned up beside the chickens so nothign can get to them. I can't wait!
