They say you either love 'em or ya hate 'em...
I'm toying with geting a few free ranging guineas for tick control, but BOY are they noisy! My friend has some, and the females start buckwheating every time you get close. I still dunno... Then I'd have to worry about my dog getting out and killing them.
My chicken killing dog couldn't catch them because they'd fly into trees. They harass my good dog. If they catch her napping they sneak up, get her surrounded, then start hollering.
These were a birthday gift, so I didn't put much prep into them. I'd wanted a guinea house for them. It's been fun, though.
