Is it normal for guineas to sit down a lot? Mine seem to be so lazy. They just want to stay inside and eat. I have to shoo them out of their house and close the door or they'll go right back and eat some more. I even have to herd them out of the run so they will range unlike my chicks who are pacing back and forth and running out as soon as I open the door. They are eight week old french guineas. Is this strain less active than others(which from reading other posts may be a good thing)? And if I want to breed successive generations how can I maintain genetic diversity. I got all 30 from J&M. I can't tell male from female but some of them have begun to start fighting (not too rough) and I guess these must be the males. Also I have abarred rock roo that is trying to mate the guineas. Has anyone seen this before? I've been reading about worming. Should I be doing this and with what? Is apple cider vinegar good for anything? I' e got Dr. Bragg's which I have read is the best for animal use.
