Hi everyone, I got three Lavender Guinea's this weekend that will be 1 year old in June. One male and two females. A woman was giving them away as the male was fighting with her sweet Bantie rooster and she was afraid the little Bantie would get hurt. She gave them to a neighbor about one mile down the road and they found their way home! I live about 40 miles from her. Anyway, I have them locked in the pen and they have not shut up! I understand that I will have to keep them penned for a few weeks but these things are driving us nuts! And it is only three....lol She raised them with her chicken flock and she said they will go into the coop every night once they acclimate of course being in the pen for a few weeks and know this is their new home. I know they want to be out free ranging and they see my chickens out there having a grand old time. I will take any and all advise anyone can give me as I have never had them before and find them very unique to say the least. I have gone to the Guinea site on the web and got alot of info from there but it is always nice to hear what others have to say.
