    The females probably would help -

    A friend of mine told me as a kid he made a stick with a hook on the end. He used that to get within so many feet of the guinea and hooked it on the guinea's leg and they were able to catch (for fun) their family's guinea birds. He said the guineas got wise to it and they had to make a longer and longer stick.

    A long handled fishing net works well too. If you have any deer netting, you could put that up and "fence" them in. Yes they can fly, but are easily cornered. Or set up a pen that you "don't" want them in and they'll go in there.

    Mine particularly like corn. I'd use that to entice them in.
