We need help. A guinea fowl arrived at our residence about 3 months ago. He roosts on our garage roof every might. He hangs out on our property all day and pecks at our cars. We’ve tried to trap him so we can take him to a wild life sanctuary, but have been unsuccessful. According to what we have read he can’t survive outside in the winter time. We need help and resources. If you have any advice or ways to help us, please, please, please reach out. Thank you!

Guinea Fowl can live outside in the winter.

Get a live trap and bait it with bird seed, sunflower seeds, etc. Once you have it caught, check around for local owners of guinea fowl. Your guest is most likely an escapee from someone local. It would be inappropriate to relocate it to a wildlife sanctuary. In the U.S. guineas are domestic fowl and are not wildlife.

Good luck catching it.

Mine get shut in a coop for protection from predators at night. In the daytime they have free choice to come and go as they wish which they do in -20°F to -30°F temperatures.

Maryland winter temperatures should not be a problem. It is more likely to be taken by a predator than it is to get too cold.
