A bald eagle is eating my chickens

I have free range chickens but a little less than two weeks ago a huge bald eagle swooped down and totally ate one. Wow! I thought it was my National Geographic moment until now he’s been back and eaten three more. How can I protect them? I would prefer not to have a rooster. Thanks Kathleen

Taking care of Guinea keets

I have a female guinea and one male. Had her and mate for around 2 years. This year she started sitting on her eggs. She has 9 eggs under her. I decided to let her sit on her eggs. She gets off sometimes that i see but is staying on her eggs. Male will go out in fenced in pen or in my fenced in back yard when i open their door. If she is confined in a big enough pen with mate will she take care of keets if and when they hatch? What besides water( in safe waterer) do they need. I dont want to use heat light. Will mother take care of them if in pen confinement?
