They'll eventually roost in the trees or on top of the coop.

Run size doesn't matter as you will want to free range them. I don't recommend keeping them in the run with the chickens all day. Mine used to give me a hard time about coming back to the coop at night, preferring a nearby tree, until one week I lost six during the night. The remaining five learned their lesson and march into the coop every night, no begging, chasing, or bribery required.

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 19 guineas in total now. 3 new on Monday which I penned and 3 on Friday. Fridays 3 were penned but the dog scared them and they got out. They keep their distance from my resident guineas but are going into the coop at night to roost. I was worried they would not know where to go but the urge to flock and roost at night is strong.
