Woo-hoo I just talked my parents into getting some guinea keets. I talked them into it by saying: you raise them for 5 or so weeks then you can release them and they don't need much care after that. They still weren't happy about the idea but then I said they will eat the ticks. I know guineas can forage for them selves and I told my parents them they could use a small shelter maybe like a 3x4 for 3 guineas and a waterer. The shelter would allow them to free range and would probably not have a front. Would I need to supply them with food or will they eat the bugs and ticks for the winter I would bring them in the garage or something. But I tld my mom they were kind of like wild birds and don't need much care as adults. Am I right?
