    Just checking to see what other folks do for their guineas in winter. Do you provide heat in your coop, insulate the coop somehow?

    I don't plan to heat. I will do my best to locate potential draft sources and seal them, though. They will already have their "winter coats" on, and who wants to be in a heated building wearing the same thing that was keeping you just right outdoors? That's the way I look at it, at least. I want them to feather out right for the season and not be inclined to shut them selves up inside for four months. That seems like asking for trouble.
