Hi, there! I have had chickens all my life, and I currently have 40-something hens and 4 roosters. I'm thinking of getting a guinea or two, because I heard they are good with deterring possums and coons. I'd love to hear your testimonials about guineas (good and bad, please), if/how they actually protect the coop, if they do well with hens and roosters, etc. Again, I welcome good and bad guinea stories.

Sorry, I have no experience with guineas so can't weigh in there, but you might also want to try posting on the Guinea Fowl Forum

BYC has Topic of the Week discussions which I have found to be a great resource, informative and sometimes entertaining; so definitely worth checking out.

This is very helpful info. I didn't realize there were ginea and state threads. Guess I've got my work cut out for me this weekend - reading these threads! I'll update my profile also! Thank you!!
