    Pallet/Scrap Wood/2x4 coop build:8x4 coop for about $250(Pic heavy)

    I built this using 2x4s and pallets/scrap wood. I also bought roofing materials. It's 8x4xabout 9 ft high and cost around $250. I'm a novice builder, and this project presented a lot of...problem solving opportunities. Not much was square etc due to the recycled material but I made it work...

    Guineas vs Coyotes

    I just witnessed something amazing. I heard loud raucous calls from my flock of Guinea Hens. I raced to the window and saw them surrounding a young coyote and herding it toward the river. They chased it across the river and stayed on the bank screaming at it for a long time. By that time I had...

    Guineas saved chickens?

    Okay so our biggest issue is goshawks - ferocious, aggressive, and brass goshawks hunt our free range chickens. They will try to murder them right on our porch! We do our very best to deter them. We recently added some guineas (successfully; knock on wood) to our flock. Still not 100 on both...

    Chicken+ Guinea Update

    We've gotten addicted. It's only been a few months and I'm hopeless. Update on the Chicken Flock We got 22 new chickens. All of them are female but three, but the person who gave them to us accidentally bought full Rhode Island Reds instead of Bantams, which is definitely a problem seeing as we...

    Where No Chicken Has Gone Before!

    I was watching my birds today and one managed to gravitate to a part of the property that I usually steer them away from. I got up to herd them back towards the others but stopped to watch... as the little fella hop-hop-hopped... into a patch of weeds and after a grasshopper. He ate the...

    I like to say "Guineas are stupid people." And I say this with humor and affection. They can be clever... to an extent. But how smart are they? ALL of my guineas can easily jump/fly over the fence to free range. They do this regularly. This is intentional. But... getting them BACK into the pen...

    Integrating Juveniles

    I have an adult male and female guinea. I had a small flock but gradually lost a the others over the years. Those two have been alone for a while and while they do fine together, they'd likely do better in a group. I picked up 6 keets and raised them in a brooder, then put them in a temporary...

    Feathers, but not sure if guinea is missing...

    We do not have any guinea, but we fenced in 1.25 acres of our yard with a special cat fence (deer fence, curved in like a prison, 3 feet of hardwire on the bottom). As we were building it, the neighbors adult Guineas kept getting in. After the fence was built, we noticed that they would fly out...

    How Did This Happen?!

    If asked how many chickens, I say "Over a dozen," and that seems sufficient. It's certainly accurate. After adding a few and hatching a few, my new answer became "Oh, around 30, I think," which didn't seem too bad since I have the space and resources. Today, I realized that I've been going...

    When do guineas pick mates?

    I've had guineas for a couple years now but I've never paid attention to when the young ones choose their mates. Now I have 3 young lavenders that I want a pair out of. When do they pick their mates? Before breeding season in spring? I'm thinking about possibly putting the lavenders in their...

    Introducing juveniles to older guineas?

    I have 4 new guineas, bought as keets and now turning juvenile. How do I introduce them to my older guineas? My older ones have a good temperament and get along with all other animals in my yard (chickens, goats, cats, etc). What's the best way to do this? Also, a rather silly question. My...

    Guineas and Snakes?

    Hiiiii everyone! I found a pretty big black snake in our backyard a few days ago (literally deathly terrified of snakes - I'm not going to lie LOL). Now all I can think of is trying to keep snakes from getting anywhere near our coop and run. I have been googling and asking around in regards to...
