While I could post this on the section for Guineas, I'm putting it here for the education of you all. If you're looking up the definition of "birdbrain" in the dictionary I'm sure it'll show a picture of a guinea fowl. I have 16 of them, 13 are snug, warm and dry in the chicken coop but the other 3 have insisted on roosting in the top of a tall tree for the last 3 days. Their reason: in order to get back in the coop they'll have to walk in the snow--there is about 5 inches on the ground. Now, normally, I don't let the birds out this time of year but a couple ducked out when I was filling the waterers a couple of days ago so I opened the pop door. The guineas saw the snow on the ground and immediately flew into the trees and stayed there. 10 came back in that night--in a couple of cases with my herding them in--but the rest stayed out. The next night another 3 came in at dark but the last three held out during nights when the temperatures went to 20 below. After 4 nights it seems all are in as I don't see any in the trees this am. Of course they could have been taken by a horned owl or frozen and fallen to the ground. I'll check today, but with 16 birds milling around in and out of the flock of chickens, it is tough to get an accurate count.
