Last year I started with 6 guinea fowl and I kep them in this coop: During christmas a dog got in and killed all 6 of them. I free range them from around 2:00pm until dark, the dog came at lunch time. When I came to let them out for there day, I saw all 5 guinea fowl (one got killed by a hunter a few weeks before this) ripped up and feathers everywhere. There was a german-short-haired-pointer in there. (note: This is the least graphic picture I have, picture will be removed upon request) I am restarting and I plan to buy 5 guineas. I am going to build a new wooden coop for my guineas, and I am not going to let that (above) happen again! Here is the area I have to build a new coop: Here is where the old coop was: ...I will post updates on how I am building the coop... (edit: picture removed).
