The guineas have been giving me a terrible time getting them in at night. They have found a small hole in the brush at the back of our property and then can't figure out how to come back through. Twice last week I had to "show" them. Last night, the birds were in front of the barn by 5pm and I went down to escort them in. When I did a head count, there were only 10 I went out calling and listening, but didn't see or hear anything. When I went back to the coop to make sure I had indeed counted wrong, the birds were all quiet and laying down. They are usually very noisy and excited about dinner. I wonder if the lost bird was taken by a predator and maybe they saw it happen. This morning, there were two soft shell eggs layed under the perch, which also makes me think they had a traumatic day. They have been laying really nice eggs for a month or so. I had hoped today that they would find their missing friend and bring him/her home, but nope, only 10. Bummer!
