Yes its not a bad idea to let them roost at night in a coop and yes, you do want to keep them penned up for the first few months so they get to know what home is before you let them free range

Here is my guinea coop:http://i91.photobucket.com/albums/k304/racuda00/IMG_1460.jpgNotice the mirrors?

I let them out every morning and shut the door at night. There was one hard-head that wanted to roost outside in a tree, but after a cold 34 degree rain one night he has gone inside ever since. smile

Also we live where it gets -40 is that to cold for them to be outside?
So what do you think of a 4x6x3 ft. portable pen with roosts 1 ft. of the ground and 3 roosts across the short end with 1 foot of space between them.
I would also cover the part with the roosts with a medal roof. The rest would be wire. I could make 3 nest boxs too.
I would put a door at one end too.
What do you guys think?
I could also make a straw hut or use a truck cap.

People who count their chickens before they are hatched act very wisely, because chickens run about so absurdly that it is impossible to count them accurately.
