    I have only had my Guineas since the summer so I'm still a novice :D does anyone know if pine processionary caterpillars are poisonous to Guineas? We will most likely be seeing a lot of them over the next couple of months and I was wondering if I could still leave the guineas to free range.

    Thanks

    No worries about this. Guineas and other birds know what they can eat and what they can't eat. If the caterpillars are toxic for them, they won't partake.
