Thinking about getting some Guinea's to help control the insect problem at my place. My question is if I let them 'free range' during the day time will they 'roost' on top of autos or farm implements located in an open barn. I keep three of my vehicles in a 36x24 open barn.

They'll roost in the rafters over you vehicles and when they poo while roosting. Well.... gravity will take over.
:tongue Yuuck...the upper level is floored for all but one 12x12 section, of course where I park my Grand Cherokee...so the question is, is it a good trade off to get rid of the bugs and ticks in the yard or clean the vehicle?? :D

Seems like I'm always looking for a good reason to got to town to was my truck anyhow. Could throw a tarp over your car if they decide to roost over it.

Guineas are also great at killing snakes and mice. Also alerting other birds of predators like hawks or foxes.
