I already know what you are going to say.. there's no telling guineas where they should go!!! We have 26 acres of forest land with several acres of cleared space. At the back of the cleared space we have a coop with 17 guineas and 4 chickens (two of the chickens were eaten by hawks while free ranging, grr). We have the run partially covered so the guineas can fly out. So far, this was working OK. Guineas would fly out during the day then fly back in at night and/or roost in a branch above the coop. They'd run around the forest nearest the coop. However, now they are ranging towards the front of the property and towards our neighbors bright and early each morning - buckwheating and chi chi chi ing away. We'd of course like them to go the OTHER way so they don't start screeching into the neighbors yards, the street, etc - but who can tell a silly bird where to go? They have acres and acres to explore but they like standing on our front lawn. I expect an irate call any day now. Fencing won't work since they can fly over it. I think my only option is to completely cover the run but is there any alternative? Any way to make one area more attractive and/or unattractive? Hubby keeps walking towards the direction we want them to go with a big bag of millet and of course they will follow, but then they'll turn into borg and all march back, right to the front of the house. I know, it's hopeless. But I think rehoming 17 4 month old guineas is going to be pretty difficult too.
