    I have 3 guineas that are sitting out in the middle of the yard in a huge storm right now. Strong winds, lots of lightening and tons of rain. All attemps to get them out of the rain has failed. Will they get sick? I dont want them to die. What do i do?

    I have never had a guinea get sick in 10 years. (knock on wood) They sit out in the rain, hail, snow and 110 degree weather and it never seems to bother them.

    Unless they are unfeathered keets, let them sit. Eventually they will figure it out. And when I say eventually, I mean it will take more than one rainstorm!

    they will learn, even now mine will sit in thunderstorms and seem oblivious to it.... or they will get on the porch and complain

    I wouldn't worry about them. Guinea fowl are hardy birds once they get out of the young keet stage, so I'll bet yours will be just fine, storm or not. [​IMG]
