    [/SIZE This past February my boyfriend boyfriend bought me 6 keets. Sady one died on the first night. But the others grew and have done wonderful with the rest of our large flock of chickens,turkeys, and ducks. With some encourgment we were even able to teach them to roost in the coop at night.

    However just over a week ago, 4 of them just seemed to vanish! No blood, feathers, or body parts. For days the one guinea left walks around the property crying out BUCKWHEAT BUCKWHEAT! So sad! But 2 days ago, i came home from the store she was also gone! Again with no evidence of an attack. ?????

    We miss our birds. We all enjoied them very much. We have searched for them or feathers ect. We have found nothing. Do any of you have any ideas what may be going on? Out on a nest or just runaways??? Any insight, or info would be appreciated!! :)

    First of all I am sorry for your loss. I am just guessing here but possibly they went off to lay eggs. They may return with a little family. They could have moved on to greener pastures you might ask your neighbors if they have seen them. I would think if a predator got them there would be some evidence of blood or feathers. I'm sorry I'm not much help to you but I wish you luck on finding them or they do return home. Let us know if they do.
