    Just like the title says, our guineas keep roosting on our patio furniture and pooping ALL over it. Is there anything we can do to discourage this sort of behavior? My DH found something called a Solar Bird Repeller that spins around constantly but not sure how well it would work. [​IMG]

    How old are they? My younger ones like to perch on chairs and benches, but the older ones seem to have outgrown it, and stick to the ground and roofs [​IMG]

    Sunny side up :)
    There aren't any big windows near the patio furniture are there? Guineas love to look at thier reflections and will roost on deck railings and patio furniture so they can see themselves in the windows lol.
