We went to pick up 6 adult guineas on Saturday. I realize keets would be easier, but this is the way we decided to go for the moment. I have 3-males/3-females Pearl gray guineas & I'm loving them so far. The "buck-wheat" call is not nearly as loud as I expected it to be. They were being fed 16% layer, but I am feeding them 20% Purina Game Bird Layena. They seem to be eating well. My coop is a coop & attached run all in one. First night was a fiasco, as they were released into the pen, because we couldn't get the dog crate into the coop. They did go into the coop during the day, but come nightfall they were just pacing in the fence, even though their coop was lighted. It took me an hour to catch them, as they kept going in the run under the coop & freaking out. Yesterday I blocked off the area under the coop & they spent the day going in & out. About an hour before dark they had all gone in. I went down to check them out right before 9 and they were all pacing in the fence. I didn't want to be picking them up in the dark again, so I went in and shoved them all in the door in about 5 minutes, as they had no where to get away from me! I expect this will go on for awhile. I started giving them millet a bit before dark after blowing a whistle. The first night they didn't seem to even know what the millet was, but ate some after my lone stray male starting going crazy outside the pen, eating his millet. Last night they seemed to eat it better. I will be keeping up this routine for the 6-8 weeks that I keep them penned. It remains to be seen how this works out, but it is fun so far!
