Hey guys, I have a small mixed flock of chickens, half silkies. I've been doing some thinking and I think I'd like to take in one or two female guineas. I will probably get them as chicks from our local feed store in the spring. I'd like to have them because of bug and tick control, and another "guard dog" to have around. Noise shouldn't be a problem, because i know they are super loud sometimes! Higher protein diet for chicks also, right? Well y'all are the experts so feel free to throw in some advice, tips, and stories or pictures if you'd like! thanks ahead of time!
