Thanks Deb, I did know about the aggression thing. My peas have to stay penned as I have a neighbor that tries to hurt them if they go into his yard but I am concerned about my turkeys as they are free range and quite the asshats when anything new comes in and my one tom is super over protective of me even when a human shows up in the yard. He makes darn sure he stays either right behind me doing his poof poof grunt or in between me and the other person lol. I was planning on keeping the guineas penned for quite a while until they are plenty old enough to defend themselves if I decided to go free range on them (I have neighbors that will steal or kill anything that goes into their yard, I guess they stole one of my other neighbors pigs when they got out one time) and they can all get to know each other through the fence. I did read that they need 30 square feet per bird and the pen I plan on for them they should have double that. Do you know what they are like with peacocks? I am in the process of building a huge play area for the peas and was wondering if they could go in with them for more run / play room or do they have a tendency to fight as well?
I honestly dont know... I havent hung around the Guinea fowl threads in quite a while. I started poking back in to this one because I am considering building a new poultry house which a good quarter of it will be devoted to Guineas.
I love Peaflowl but its the night calling that would get to me. So I have never had any. When I get setup I should should have about sixty guineas. Guineas are quiet at night unless they get disturbed. That is partially the reason for having them for me.. My place is two miles from the Mexican border.
