I have been wanting Guinea fowl for so long now...feels like forever and I finally found a local person that sells them and I just bought 4 on May 31st....I LOVED them...they were so cute!!! I was so excitted to finally have them and each night I would go out and spend a short time with them afterwork so they would get used to me and it was working BUT yesturday morning when I went to let my chickens out of the coop for the day I found two of my baby keets dead with snake bite wounds and the others were no where to be found!!!! I stood there and cryied I had then in what I thought was a secure area completely enclosed with chickenwire ... wasnt thinking about snakes because I always kept my new chicken chicks in there and never had a problem. What I dont understand is HOW the snake got back out after eating 2 guinea keets and 2 turkey chicks!?!? SSSSooo now I am without guineas OOohhh that darn snake makes me so mad....we looked everywhere for it but no luck.
