Seriously, I read everyone else's postings about their guineas and wonder what on earth is wrong with mine! We definitely have a love hate relationship with these birds, and I think they've pushed me too far this time. Here's the short version of the situation - they're hateful to our chickens (hens). For a while the chickens wouldn't roost in their house because the guineas would beat them up when they tried to get into the house. Solution: Let the guineas roost outside like they want to. Things were good after that. Until one of the hens (chicken hens, not guinea hens) started laying eggs. Everything was fine until the guineas would find her nest, then they would break and eat the eggs and our hen would move her nest. This happened in 3 different nests, until she started laying in the nestbox loft inside the hen house. The guineas didn't go in the hen house anymore, so the nest/eggs have been safe for a couple months now. Sunday afternoon we put a light in the hen house to keep them warm (one of those "you need heat because I'm cold" situations - like when you make a child wear a sweater because you're cold) and to give them a few more hours of light hoping it would encourage more of the chickens to start laying. Apparently the light in the hen house attracted the attention of the guineas. Yesterday afternoon when I went out to collect the eggs we just had one broken one in the nestbox. It looks like the guineas must have found the nest and broke the one egg that I left Sunday afternoon (we have to leave one egg or else our hens lay somewhere else) was broken and either yesterdays eggs were already eaten or the hens laid their eggs somewhere else. So my question is - what's wrong with my guineas?! Why do they break and eat the chicken eggs whenever they find them? Is there any way to stop this kind of behavior? This really is the last straw as far as I'm concerned. They're loud, the poop all over our deck and roof (and our puppy eats it, guinea poop seems to be his favorite treat), they roam to our neighbors houses all the time, they beat up our chickens... We finally got our neighbor to admit that he doesn't really like the guineas and told him we were going to try some different things to make the guineas less annoying. Now they break my food?!? I'm not sure they're worth all the effort and expense, and frustration. It might just be time to rehome them...unless anyone has any ideas on how to make the guineas stop being evil. Any suggestions??
