I'm afraid that if I clip my guineas wings, they won't be able to get up on roosts. How high will they be able to jump after clipping? They have become too hard to contain, terrorize my chickens, and give me all sorts of trouble at bedtime. We have 2 fenced in acres, a coop, and an open barn - you'd think that would be enough room for 9 chickens, 2 turkeys, and 6 guineas, but noooo. Since the turkeys and guineas think they are family, we call them "turguineas," and they run the chickens out of the lot, then go to the other end, where the guineas jump the fence. Sunday, they came out, crossed the street, came up around the corner, across our yard, and into the garage just to mock me, then, just to make sure I was late for church, went around the other side of our house, past our backyard, through our neighbor's yard, and halfway around the warehouse in the lot behind us! Although I enjoy calls from my neighbors, having them phone from their car telling me the guineas are in the road - again - is not my idea of a pleasant conversation. I've gotten so frustrated at the hassle of trying to get them in the coop, that last night I left all the turguinea clan out, then worried all night about them catching cold. Hubby and I went up late and checked on them, only to find them cozy and sound, perched 4 1/2 feet up on an old wood hay feeder. This morning? Out in the road again. We're putting up a 6ft. tall fence in the back, but the turguineas are so cruel to the chickens, I don't want to put them back there. Sorry, got off subject with my rant. I want to clip their wings so they can't fly over a 4 ft tall fence, but I'm afraid if I do that, they won't be able to roost to be safe at night. How low must a roost be for them to be able to reach it after clipping?
