In the Brooder
- Apr 27, 2014
I have raised 5 chickens and 5 guineas together now for 3-4 months. My guineas are creating havoc at roosting time. They jump and squawk and push chickens off the roost. Do I need to get another place for the guineas to roost or could I put a high roost in the coop where the chickens couldn't fly and that would satisfy the guineas? What if my hens raised chicks...would the guineas hurt them? They all free range in the daytime and I'm mostly having difficulty at the coop at roosting time. Although my roo seems to try mating with the female guinea in the daytime.....? If I have to find another place for the guineas at night, what would you all suggest?
