So we bought a new farm. We talked about leaving the guineas at the old house. Then I decided that I couldn't. They had to come with us. I figured that if I didn't take them and just ordered new keets in the spring to start a whole new flock that we would have ticks coming out our rears if we didn't have adults out and about. So we moved them. It took 30 minutes to gather them all into cages. Even in the dark locked in the coop. They fled. They beat me up. They bit me. I have scratches to no end on my hands and lower arms. Even wearing gloves and a thick coat. Those sharp little guinea nails found my skin. You'd think I had never ever touched them before. These are the same guineas who will eat out of my hand. But they are happy now in thier new home! We made a temporary pen to keep them locked in during the day off the coop. Oh - never let anyone tell you that you can't make a 12x37 foot pen being held together with zip strips AND keep the birds in! LOL. We did and it's been a week and it works!
