    Last night, when I went out to close the coop door, all nine of my guinea fowl were gone, and there were feathers on the ground around my coop. All the chickens were snug on their roosts. I heard the guineas. The ones that were alive were high up in trees instead of in their coop. Today, I identified the ones that are still alive. I lost three precious guinea fowl.

    So sorry to hear that - Guineas like it outdoors better than in a coop, but it leaves them much more vulnerable to predators.

    It is terrible to lose chickens or guinea fowl to predators. Thank you for your help.[​IMG].
