Hi All, we hatched 15 guineas that are now about 10 weeks old. They’ve been raised with chickens and ducks, and they’ve all been in a coop/run for 6 weeks. My intention is to free range the guineas (maybe with a rooster/hen) and have them come back to the coop at night to roost. For three weeks, I let guineas/chicks/ducks out 1-2 hr before dark to practice free range and going into coop at night. Guineas have been good about staying close and coming in. Problem: a coyote killed a hen that was free ranging with them a few days ago. The coop is at a forest/prairie border, and the birds all gravitate towards the forest, which is where the hen was taken, 30 feet from the coop. All are closed in the run/coop now, but the guineas need to go out eventually. I plan to try herding the birds towards prairie/lawn and stake my dog in woods to discourage them from woods. Of course, we also have hawks... Questions: 1) At what age do they need to get out full time for guinea/chicken sanity? I can continue supervised free ranging for 1-2 hr a day, several tones per week if that would help this transition. 2) Anything else I can do to help guineas be predator savvy? I really love these guineas and am feeling awful about asking them to free range now... I had thought that if I could convince them to come in at night, they’d be fairly safe, but now think that won’t be the case... Thanks!!!
