Can you add in Guinea hens??

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So I'm getting 4 ducks and 3 chickens may 18th. A friend of mine is trying to talk me into 2 Guinea hens. My run is going to be 20x20 completely fenced in. My coop is 6x7 x 6 heigh. I have a perch in it for the chickens. And 2 12x12 roost boxes on the wall. Will the work for Guinea hens? Do I have enough room? What to expect or know. I'm new to this

I would ask in the guinea forum. I do think I read they can get aggressive with other species and they need room to roam.
Chickens, muscovy ducks, turkeys, donkeys , goats, dogs, fish, parakeets, a parrot, and a cat.

Chickens and dogs are healing to the soul.

I brake for squirrels.

Some of my birds.

Sorry, I haven't owned them, they are too noisy for me, and I have turkeys. I guess you will find out. Wish I had a good answer for you.
