My 12 guineas are in a covered run, they free range the entire day if I am home, but are penned 2-3 days a week when I am gone for 12 hours out of the day. We are getting a small part of the rain from Sandy here in Ohio. My birds look like drowned rats. They have 2 roosts that they sit on most of the time, and I have a covered area that they all fit in, and they hang out in occasionally during the day, but insist on roosting outside IN THE RAIN all night. They share a run with the ducks, and I have a little set up that they all have their place with the guineas up high, and the ducks down below. Anyway, is this the norm for other people with guineas? I have learned that I do not wish to reach up and grab them one at a time (they are soooo strong and have the upper hand when above my head). So, I really cannot move them. edited to add, the covered, dry perch is used by them off and on throughout the day even when free ranging, but they have sat in the rain 3 days now, even when free ranging. Also -- they can get in to chicken coop, they go in there off and on when free ranging (an exit into the guinea run is open). Just wondering, my husband keeps making reference to their intelligence, and I'm beginning to wonder too.
