Mine dont. They sit on the nests all day and make a mess. On the side of the coop is a pretty big run that the chickens enjoy but the guineas dont.

BTW- I have 2 guineas: 1 male, 1 female.

Mine are first to fly out of coop each a.m. when door is opened! They are the last to come in to roost at night..
If I have to leave coop locked up they chatter all day!
You must have 2 spoiled ones

Mine live outside all the time, they refuse to use a coop. They had a nice one but prefer to roost in the top of a huge tree, winter and summer. so I put more chickens in their old coop. Mine freerange anywhere they want and they never really leave the farm. I have around 40 adults now, and alot of keets in the brooders.

Mine also will absolutely not roost anywhere but in a tree. Even when it rained yesterday, they were in the tree. My two hens were going into the barn and roosting alot, but they don't even do that anymore.

How long have you had your guineas? They don't handle change well. When we first let ours out it takes weeks before they finally venture outside.

Mine went out for the first time today, they are only 6 weeks old and I had to push them out the door, they had a blast, like kids in a candy store

I have had them for about 4- 5 weeks. They lady I bought them from didnt let them outside. She didnt even have a window in the building they were in so i dont think they quite know to go out. They chatter at me when I fill the feeders. I put them out in the run twice but they still havent figured out that they need to go out yet.
