I'm not sure I'm going to need to get rid of them. I think they are well on their way to annihilating themselves without my help. 

 

As far as BF goes, he's going to stay as long as he can stand it.

I've heard that the average life expectancy of a guinea is from the time they are hatched, to the time they try to cross a road.:hide

I am not impressed with their intelligence. 

 

I am impressed that (insert god, mother nature, darwinism here) equipped guineas with a helmet. They need it.

I have been playing with that chicken genetic calculator thing...

Turns out that my black Ameraucana over Dominique hens is a sex linked cross!

Cool.

I can't plug in my dark brown leghorns.. I have no idea what they are genetically, and on the "I am highly deficiant in chicken genetics knowledge" page, I don't see a "dark brown" button. Not sure what else a dark brown Leghorn would be.

It turns out that my Wheaten over Millie Fleur makes a buff columbian... Who knew?! Not me.

Guineas apparently can hit the broad side of a barn (or house).

 

 

At 1640 today, after flying approximately 50 feet at approximately 10 mph, the jumbo french guinea, in full Kamikaze mode, slammed into the size of a local farmhouse, scaring the occupants. Upon exiting the front door, the co-ed occupants discovered a very discombobulated guinea under the front porch and clearly visible claw marks going down the side of the house. Using a Swiffer broom handle to extract the guinea caused a syndrome known as Massive Guinea Panic resulting in a riot in the guineas awaiting their turn for Kamikaze training. 

 

Two guineas flew at the heads of the occupants, one ended up at full rest, pleased with itself high in a pine tree.

 

All was saved when the male occupant grabbed a stale container of Cinnamon Toast Crunch. 

 

Further bulletins as events warrant.
