    I had posted some days back asking what predators were in my area...(virginia, new river area)
    anyway,
    today my guineas were raising a real fuss....went out to see what was wrong...I see a red fox in the back field...
    went back in the house, came back outside, and on the third try, the fox dropped of lead poisoning!!

    my guineas gathered closer to him, encircling him, closer and closer...well, you get the idea...

    I was only trying to protect the guineas, ducks, chickens and peacock...

    ( posted this in guineas section (& ducks) and was suggested it should be here...)
    ( and true...this is were it belongs...)

    Lead poisoning, too funny. I am glad your flock is safe. Guineas are great guards. Where is New River though??
