Hi BYC! I'm currently a junior in high school involved with the Natural Resources program. We are starting all over again with new chicks (chickens), possibly Barred Rocks, Buff Orpingtons, and few Barnvelders. However, our campus is in the middle of the Sierra Nevada mountains area, surrounded by multitudes of wildlife, and we plan on doing rotational grazing with Barbados sheep and chickens to restore the soil and plant life to native grasses. However, we wanted a form of protection/alarm system for the new chickens, and we thought that raising Guinea keets along with the chicks would create trust between the birds so that we would be alerted if a predator would prey on either them or the sheep. I wanted to know more about raising guineas with chickens together, and how would I go about obtaining local keets in El Dorado County. Any advice is welcome. Thank you on behalf of the Natural Resources Program!
