So I thought about a separate coop for the guineas, and wondered if a little coop up in a tree would be doable. Anyone done such a crazy thing? Post pics! I think it would be so cool!! It would be hard to collect eggs unless you had a ladder, so it would probably work better for guineas or maybe peafowl

Novel, but impractical IMO.

I think the problem would be getting them on board with using it.
Guineas always seem to have a different idea then me when picking a place to roost.
Given a nice coop they'll always rather sleep on top of it. Also would wonder if you'd get them to lay there. Mine always prefer on the ground hidden somewheres.
Guess most would lock them up at night but I can picture trying to climb a latter with a handful of guineas freaking out.
Sounds like it'd eventually end up with broken bones and a head wound.
