i am new to guineas id like to get a small flock of 10-20 i have been dicieding on either keets or adult birds i dont no yet i figured if i got adult birds they could be penned up the rest of the winter and then would learn that this is their new home correct? i also thought of putting all but the guineas in one pen and putting 2 in the chicken house as the chickens dont run the yard free they are always in the barn then maybe the rest of guineas would not roam as far? my chicken house has a door with fence over it so they can see in and out. I also have dogs gardens corn feilds around and woods so i think the tick controle would be great and jap beatles to. My other thing i didnlt no if i brought home older ones if they would protect the area from cats like they say? i have no cats nor do i want any they are the only issue with predators that i have my coon hounds keep the other varmints away they do a good job with the cats but not the best and ideas?
