These birds look fun to watch and interesting. I need advice on housing, run protection and feeding please.
I'm glad you commented on rehousing. I wondered how they'd handle that.^^Agreed.
If you put in the work to get them on a routine right from the start they will stick with it.
If mine are out when I leave the house and I don’t get back till dark, I know they will be in the coop when I get home. All I have to do is shut the door.
And even adult guineas are able to learn new routines. I switched coops on mine last year. Now, it was a bit of work the first week or two, but it got easier each time. And now they are completely settled on cooping up at night on their own.
There are lots of threads on here with coop setups, feed recommendations, fencing(funnel fencing that is very helpful when coop training), and so much more.
They are awesome birds.
It was something that gave me a lot of stress just thinking about it. I pictured having to chase them down with a net and relocating them one at a time. And with 12 adults at the time I was not looking forward to thatI'm glad you commented on rehousing. I wondered how they'd handle that.
