Yeah, out of 11 hatched, 4 survived. Then my #%&%^^ dogs went on a tear, guineas were on the "toy" and "menu" list. I beat hell out of my dogs with dead guineas until my arms were sore. I raged, screamed my lungs out, ranted and raved like an insane looney idiot. I went utterly ballistic on Trip when I caught him munching on guineas twice in the same day, beating him with one of the guineas until the guts came out of it, then I switched to a flyswatter. I locked him in the backyard for 3 weeks, making a point to go in every day, not look at him, speak to him or touch him. He came out very subdued. I couldn't catch who was doing the killing, but all the dogs (not Paris) were chasing them. So all 4 got their guinea beatings. Haha, the day I went ballistic on Trip, the sheep ran to the far corner to hide from me. Whatever was wrong with me, they wanted no part of it.
