Ok the guineas are 16 weeks old... - Page 2

post #11 of 12
I let mine out on rainy days. If it's a drizzle they roam like normal, otherwise they hang out in the covered run. Mine fly up on our roof at least a few times a day. I think they like to survey the area.

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 :)

I have 3 with 10 chickens.. raised them together.   I started letting them out around 9 weeks.. to my surprise it is usually the guinea's who head back to the chicken house more frequently for shelter,  snacks, rest etc.  The chickens are more adventurous.   My guinea's are addicted to banana, and string cheese.. I have been hand feeding since they were a couple weeks old.  They adore broc and napa and a few other things - so if they see I have any of those foods they are usually first in line.  They think they are chickens.  Our young roo though gets very mad at them when they do "guinea" things like fly on roofs and up high into the tree's and scolds them and fusses them when they are in reach again.. I suspect though as they get older (14 weeks now) they will probably go a lot further but we are hoping they will decide to stick closer to home.
