Hello and welcome.

If you start off with adult gunieas, you will need to pen them for a good month or so, because we found that they would try to make they way back to their old home. When we sold adults, if the new owners did not pen them up they would find their way back to us, unless the owners were way off.

If you start off with chicks, they normaly come in straight run and it takes close to a year before you know what you've got and you can feed them out like day old chicks.

3 guniea eggs = 1 chicken egg, they are very good and dye quite nice for Easter

Son's gunieas would lay their eggs in the chicken coop, but would roost on top of the coop at night and if I did not take a broom to them to chase them in the coop at night the owl would pick them off.

Funney thing is that all the colored gunieas were picked off 1st by the hawks and owls when they were out in the woods. We only lost white ones to the pigs.

They would go around the pig pen EVERY DAY at noon and make such a fuse and when one was stupid enough to jump the pig's fence. Spot had a free meal.

We could tell when someone drove up the driveway better with them then the dog.

Before my son fell out with the reds with them we had 6 on 5 acres. The male guniea killed his show rooster and he traded them for 9 layen hens.

Let me know if you need anything else.

We did not clip their wings, with the coyote problem we had we figured it would be best to allow them to fly up in the trees.
