I am considering getting some guinea keets next year and raising them up to let loose on our property for bug control. The grasshoppers totally decimated my garden this year and want to avoid this in the future. We only have an acre, and the land behind us is farmland (currently soybeans I think) and then we have some neighbors as we are just outside town limits. At one time, we had geese that shared space with the goats, and that was my intention this time with guineas. I was planning on raising them up in a coop till they are old enough, then letting them into the yard with the goats. We have an old auto waterer for the goats that we used to use the underneath to feed the geese and this was our plan for feeding. we have a big bowl of water out for our adopted stray dog..thought that might work for them. Goats have two nice goat houses I thought the guineas could live in and we could feed them out of the goat pen. We never have anything come into the goat area, its welded wire fence 2"x4" on the perimeter fence and cattle panel up by our house. I have never seen a coyote nearby, maybe a passing fox, but nothing gets into the goat yard. How likely would it be to get the guineas to live int he goat yard. I figure if we do lose them to predators though I doubt its likely, that we just would not try it again. Any advice?
