I'd like to add guineas to my homestead, primarily for bug control. As such, I'm don't care that much if some fly off or get eaten, and I don't plan to harvest eggs for now. I would Luke to encourage them to come "home" at night.
I'm in zone 5a in northern Illinois. I have springs on and aroundy land
, so I don't worry about water
, but perhaps about how they'll survive the winter weather and dearth of forage.
What thoughts do you have for simple night housing and the necessity of winter feed
