    I have three guineas that I'm raising with my chicks. When the time comes to let them out into the large fence in area, do or can I clip theirs wings to keep them from flying over. ( I have had to do this for some hens to keep them with-in the fence) I have about 1 acre for them. Thanks

    I'm no expert on guineas but I would say if you don't want them to fly over the fence clip their wings by all means. Mine are 5 weeks old and I'm getting ready to clip their wings.
