I didn't see anything about penning them at night or if there is a problem with predators...we have hawks, owls, coyotes and bear and I am not sure our cat wouldn't try to kill one...she is able to kill a small rabbit. There is some good guinea information in some of the tick threads but all come back to the noise. Here locally some one has 'guinea keets,4-7 weeks old, $4-5 each'. If I got ten that age what sort of pen would they need to live in while they 'bond' with the place?...and a coop at night?
