Guineas in Winter

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Just checking to see what other folks do for their guineas in winter. Do you provide heat in your coop, insulate the coop somehow?

I don't plan to heat. I will do my best to locate potential draft sources and seal them, though. They will already have their "winter coats" on, and who wants to be in a heated building wearing the same thing that was keeping you just right outdoors? That's the way I look at it, at least. I want them to feather out right for the season and not be inclined to shut them selves up inside for four months. That seems like asking for trouble.

Japanese, OEG, Sebright, Brahmn, d'Uccle, and EE bantams; and RIR, BR, and EEs, Golden Penciled Hamburg, EEs, Anconas, Bielefelders, Wheaten Marans, Speckled Sussex, and a surprise variety of bantams with breeds tbd!

 

16 guineas and 2 turkeys to round out the flock

 

Another victim of poultry math. Aiming for a "designer" flock and egg basket :)
