Guineas stuck in a tree!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
And they won't come down!
I recently acquired 3 new adult guineas. I left them in their new coop for 2 weeks as suggested. I fed them at night so they would get used to returning for food. They came back the first night and now for two nights in a row they've been in the tree. They won't come down! I restricted their food and I made a lot of noise when it was feeding time, nothing is working! Please help, my only concern is I live in eastern Ontario, Canada...our winters are wicked.

I've never had guinea but here is a link to the guinea forum, maybe someone there can give you some advice:

Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to join our flock. I'm a chicken person and don't know much about Guineas (never had any), but definitely post on the Guinea link that NorthFlChick left with you and take advantage of our Guinea experts there. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Cheers.

They probably need an enclosed run with top,  then they wouldn't end up roosting in trees.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

Alright :welcome great to have you joining the BYC flock :frow

 

 

 

 

Ya guinea are something alright but the first part is someone already let them roost in the trees and that is where it is most comfortable for them and to catch them is not going to be easy for a new owner ..........

 

 

 


great as a group but they are not chickens .....

 

 

 

 

 

 

They do like to roost up high but the only thing to worry about is getting wet or high winds if there is a group of them but remember these guinea are the best security guards you can get and letting them stay up high is great for them and it might not hurt if you put a little house for them in the tree also a bit of tin around the trunk of the tree to stop predators from interring there safe domain   ..... ;)

 

 

 

 

 

The best to do is extreme weather is to put them in a very secure coop with high roosting for the guinea :yiipchick

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Good luck with your flock  :highfive:
