    This morning when I went to feed my guinea pair & their 15 keets, I found 2 dead babies and 1 barely alive (it died shortly after I found it). Another six were missing. [​IMG]
    I'm 99% sure it was a coon. Dang it we had 20 guineas total and now we only have 11. [​IMG]

    I never thought something would come through our buck goat pen to get at the guineas, but I guess they didn't care. [​IMG]

    I'm so ready to go get me some raccoon skins. [​IMG]


  2. Oh NO! I'm sorry! That's disappointing to have so many to start with and end up with half...

    As for getting some coon skins, GO FOR IT! [​IMG] They will try and get just about anywhere for an easy meal. Especially keets. [​IMG] Again I'm sorry!!
