Also posted on "Managing your Flock" thread: We have 14 chickens in a nice coop with a pretty good run. They are in the run during the day then locked in the coop at night. Our 8 guineas will soon move from the brooder into the coop in a close, but separate area. The plan is to have the guineas free range during the day, and into the coop for the night. Question: Will these guineas cause more attention from predators than our chickens currently do with all the racket and noise? I guess in writing this I'm coming to the conclusion that, yes, they will draw in more predators....... Will the guineas be worth the risk?
