I have 12 guineas. I got them the end of May as day olds. They are growing quickly. I have been trying to free range them and for now, they like the run. We built this south facing shelter, with a 2x4 up high for guineas, protected. For now, feeding them there to protect feeder, but this weekend will have feeding station to the right of this set up for ducks (on bottom) and guineas on top with 3 sides to protect from rain/snow this winter. Thanks for looking.
