(Asking for a friend ) So, a friend of mine has a 10 acre Apple orchard, and they're having a really hard time controlling ticks. They're considering Guineas, but they have a few questions about them. 1. Is it possible to just let a flock go in the orchard and be done? Or would they need food,water, and shelter supplied? 2. I know they're pretty stupid, so population control wouldn't be a big issue. Do they go broody enough to break even population-wise? 3. Are the Roosters mean or territorial? It's a U-pick, so having an attack-guinea isn't an option. 4. Could they make it through snow/wind/rain? I know they're an African breed, but I think someone told me once that they are pretty cold-hearty. I don't know if this is true though.... TIA!
