    I just have a question about my 2-3months old guinea fowl. I have 4 and I'm wondering how I can get them to roost in a tree? At the moment they keep going back into the coup with my chickens who range from 2-4months old. Unfortunately the 4 guinea fowl are starting to peck and be aggressive towards my chickens :( finding piles of baby feathers and have witnessed them do it! Any ideas how I can 'kick' them out and make sure it's into a tree and not a foxes mouth?

    I do not have Guinea fowl, but here is my Idea. After they are inside your coop for the night, remove them and place them into your tree. Then observe. If they stay there, then fine. If they fly down, then try same next day but earlier. One thing I did read about guineas, but don't have personal experience, is this.... Guineas will roost in trees and eventually expand their range until they are off your property and gone too far to return.
