My first predator loss. After keeping my guineas cooped up for 2 days after the snow I decided to let them out for a coupe hours. Turns out they are terrified of snow and flewup in the trees. When we tried to throw things up there to scare them out, they flew further away into higher trees! They would not come down. They went out into the woods into huge 100+yr old trees. After dark I had no choice but to leave them, which was an awful feeling. I was out this morning before the sun rose to start counting them. Found one on the ground injured but looks like it should heal ok. I cleaned it up. One of my favorite pintos (very pied) is gone and there are coyote tracks all over around the trees. All but that one are accounted for. I know we have tons of predators and I'm just sick for my pinto. I barricaded my chickens in the coop and left the run open today hoping to entice them back in. Its full of food and water just waiting for them. So far 6 have come in, and most of the rest have moved closer to run run into smaller trees. I'm really hoping I can get them all in before dark tonight! I know these predators will return!
