    They finally settled in and are eating. I found unlike the chickens they don't like to eat off the ground, although they did when living with the chickens. Besides their continious feeder I've put a rubber bowl in their pen and they eat fine out of that. We've found them a wonderful home with their own guinea family. They will freak out when the new family flies up on the roof, they've never been more than 5 feet off the ground. hahaha.

    You are absolutely right, guineas hate change, wow, they HATE it. The chickens on the other hand love it when you move or add things to their pen. The guineas get so stressed. BEFORE YOU GET YOUR FIRST GUINEAS READ-READ-READ. Take the advice given here.

    They move on Friday and they will be missed. If I ever have them again I will have at least 20. The more the happier they will be. Oh yes I did put a mirror in their yard. I love the "purring" sound they make.

    Thank you all for your help I couldn't do it without you guys.
