    Thanks much, really interested in guineas for pest control, we're on an acre within 50 acres of woods. Will have pics soon!

    The only things I've heard about guineas is they are great tick eaters and readily sound alarms if something seems amiss to them. If you go to "Other Backyard Poultry," forum above you will find threads on guineas - people there would be able to answer your questions. Welcome to the flock.

    Boy, you are going to need a lot of guineas to keep up with so much woods.
