    They're just bad guineas. I'm pretty sure they're herding the chickens into the old yard and keeping them there, because I've been coop training for about three weeks now. Of course I can't catch them. :/

    I was going to get some guin eggs at some point.  I dont know anything about them, do they roost in coops at night?

    Mine would when they were younger, but only on rainy nights. Now they roost on a collapsed gazebo frame right outside my kitchen window, rain or shine.

    Granny kept hers in their own house. I let mine get too wild. But I love them and wouldn't get rid if them for anything. They crack me up, and they keep my boy entertained. They just trot in patient circles while he hollers "GET THOSE GUINEAS!" And runs full tilt. I'd love about 40 more. :lau
