Thanks admin for makeing registration easy!
Ive had 3 for about a year, now have 22 keets 10 days old. I must have a larger pen , im hoping the keets will roost in pen as adults.
Question is if i build the pen 7.5 feet tall with a tin roof, where should i put the roosting sticks and will that be tall enough to suit them?
Thanks

Guineas are like turkeys coming off roost so consider building the house long enough to allow them to fly down without hurting or killing themselves by hitting the walls. Obviously the roost pole height will be limited by the house height, but plan enough clearance for the adult birds to safely fly or walk up to the pole, as well as stand up on it. Our guineas decided to roost in the trees- about 25-30' up.
