My flock of very noisy guineas (ten of them) have free run of my eight acres of woods and yard. I love their noise and how they follow me around talking to me whenever I am outside. Due to a disability, I use an electric scooter wheelchair, so they seem to come running from everywhere when I go into the yard. Last year, they did leave my vegetable garden alone, except to eat bugs, but then I would feed them before planting. I also only feed in one specific area, near my chicken pen. This year, I want to seed an area of my neck of woods with wildflowers and bird seed. I tried it last fall, to get a head start for spring flowers, but my babies thought I was just throwing out some special treat for them. I tried chasing them away, putting up shiny flapping flags, and a fake hawk decoy, but nothing seemed to stop them from gobbling up the seeds. (I tried to explain they should go find some ticks to munch on, but they didn't listen at all.) So does anyone have any suggestions on how I can have my guineas and my wild garden?
