    After over 2 months of roosting in the trees, my silly guineas have finally decided to join the chickens in the barn!! [​IMG]

    I guess the snow we got last night was too much for them!! [​IMG]

    There were one or two that would go in occasionally, but never everyday. Since it is cold now, and it gets dark early, I have been doing my afternoon 'corn toss' earlier. If I wait till almost dark like I was doing before, most of the chickens are already roosting. And any guineas in the barn promptly vacate, and go to the trees. So since there is no one out there to scare them away, they have gotten the guts up to go in the barn and stay there!
