    I want another type of bird to add to the flock...... something that will take advantage of my small backyard forest and roost in the trees [​IMG] What birds will stay around, but fly into the trees around the property?

    Guineas fly into trees, but stick around, you should try them!! (but be ready for noise!)

    bantams would want to roost at night with the other chickens though right? I don't want more birds roosting in there as they tend to poop on my rabbit cages. I already had to sacrifice one of my rabbit cages for a roost for the turkeys [​IMG] My current chickens roost in the rafters over the walkway, so don't poop on the cages anymore (they did for a while and I had to line the top of the cages to protect the rabbits from chicken bombs, LOL)
    Guineas would roost in the trees at night?

    are guinea's noisy early in the morning like a rooster? I personally don't care if they are noisy, just curious!
