Okay.... I Want Guineas!!! I'm a little on the fence. My DH has recently agreed this is a good idea (yay! fire up the incubator) I'm about to bid on guinea eggs, currently on auction, unless someone tells me than raising 1-2 hens with a broody Silkie hen & cooping them up at night with the flock is insane. Here are the considerations: 0- my one -acre- away neighbors can hear them & I'm semi-suburban (with no poultry or farming ordinance) 1--they'll be inside a secure coop at night, and in a large run & tractored the majority of the day (unfortunately) 2--the neighbors couldn't care less about the 4 bantam roos who crow --1 from inside my house! 3- there's a lot of loud traffic & industrial stuff around here anyway 4- I have no backyard neighbors, just acres of forest, and there are a ton of bugs & weeds to eat, & undergrowth (rhodies to hide in year round.) Good to raise a couple guinea hens?
