    Hello all I am very annoyed with my guinea's I have just built a coop for my chickens, about 2 weeks ago, now the 4 guinea's I have are guarding the door of the chicken house and not allowing the chickens to come in to eat or drink. I hate them, I want them gone, if anyone is interested, PLEASE Pm me email me write back on here and they are YOURS!!!!! I am about to find them a woody area in the woods and drop them off!!! I know it sounds horrible but I can't take them anymore. I live in South Central Pennsylvania, **address removed** if you would like to map quest or what ever. I don't know the gender of these birds there are two regular color and two lavender. They are this springs chicks they will be a year old in June this summer.

    Just because there is a couple chicken feathers missing, and no guinea feathers missing? It could be a setup. Maybe blame it on the Turkeys they only seem slow(in a special needs kind of way) they are trickier than you think. [​IMG]

    Put them on Craigs list they should go in a hurry. LOL. guinea's can be a real pain. Ya either love em or hate em. I had to send a bunch of them to visit Uncle Kelvinator myslef for the same reason.

    I am going to hatch some in the spring though and see how they do. I gave mine to a freind so I could get some eggs when they start laying.

    Ha Ha good to see I'm not alone. My roosters are deathly afraid of the guineas, and my one hen has one single tail feather left, and they are free range bird completely so they don't have to stay together but the snow has them all wanting to be in the coop, and if the guinea's get bored they go find the chickens just to harass them!!! They come from behind grab a mouth full of feathers and hang on for the ride. I got the guineas cuz I heard they were good for keeping snakes at bay, and loud if something came around, well no snakes for them to chase away, they eat like HOGS, and they are continually LOUD!!!!!! ALL THE TIME!!!

    Quote:Maybe you need a bigger rooster? Were they raised together? Mine were raised by chickens, I have some that are 6 months old, and they still run to Mom(Australop) when they need comforting. [​IMG] [​IMG] I have two that dont know they are guineas, one stays with its chickens, and one that was raised with turkeys and still roost with the turkeys, I tried to combine all the guineas, but those two want nothing to do with the regular guineas. I have not had any problems with ticks, or anything else coming into the yard unannounced. Your a little far for the roadtrip to save these guys. They are good to eat, if all else fails. [​IMG]
