So, my 5 have been jumping up on the well house roof and calling out like they've lost their noodles. Why are they doing this? It's more annoying than anything, since they could jump down to the duck side and then to the dogs = dead birds.

It's sort of anybodies guess but I would be looking around the area to see if there is a nest they're bragging about. Check under any bushes or behind boards.

Mine get on the shed and scream bloody murder for no appartent reason. I think they just like to hear themselves talk. But I also think it's normal guinea behavior because when I walk away like it's nothing they stop yelling and get down off the shed and go about their own business.

I've already realized this is normal and that Guineas are...special...lol. I was just wondering if others did this and if anyone knew why.
They are very dramatic about everything, always need to be near each other and a fence between them is just torture.

LOL welcome to yet another one of the joys of Guineas. Yup, lost their noodles sums it up nicely

Usually here it's the males that do it most often, annoucing that they have discovered the newest best vantage point (even tho they were up there yesterday), and they are telling everybody what they see (again)

When I get sick of listening to it... I get the hose

I was ignoring mine chi chi-ing up a storm yesterday only to discover they were having fits over a hawk and had let all the chicken know. Maybe I have been ignoring them too much lately!

They saw a chicken on the unfinished fence section and joined him! Bad birds! They could of been eaten, they are so weird...
