In an attempt to provide more protection for my free range laying hens, on advise from others I bought nine cross breed guinea's about three weeks ago. I have them on lock down with my three remaining laying chickens. I lost 12 hens and thee ducks to coyotes in a matter of minutes at dusk about four weeks ago Everyone is getting along. In fact one of the chickens has taken up roosting at night between the guinea's. They are very calm when I enter the coop to feed and water them twice a day. My question; it appears, from the racket all night, the GH never sleep! No matter what time of night I listen for them they are up calling..Is this normal GH behavior??? Thank goodness its winter and I have no close neighbors. They even have the peacocks going at night now so I know they are keeping them up. Thankinh you in advanced for your help.
