I have sewed lettuce seeds 3 times and got very few plants. I decided to plant the other 4 tomatoes where i had tried to grow lettuce and found lots of sprouting seed as deep in the ground. the guineas have been dust bathing in there and keep covering the seeds.
I put some were screens over the tomatoes hoping that would discourage them.
night before last just at day break I heard them scream and thought nothing about it but the neighbor found a lot of feathers in front of his car and I guess an owl had a feast. I only have 7 guineas now.
I saw where one had laid a egg on the chicken wire which they roost on. rotten guineas!
