guinea

When I was a kid we had guinea's. They lived outside. I don't remember why but they would not roost with the chickens. We might have gorren them as adults not sure. If you raise them with chick's will they roost with them?

When I have had guinea fowl, the only times they would sleep in a coop was when it was extremely bad weather or a predator (GHO) was attacking at night.

On the flip side, my guineas would NOT stay out of the chicken coop! We provided them with a coop of their own, and no matter how long I locked them in their coop, they'd make their way back to the chickens and hop the fence into the chickens space. Then they'd proceed to bully and pester everyone until I'd shepherd them back and lock them up again. I think if yours are raised with the chickens and started in their coop they'll stay there.

Good luck.
