I had a series of small sets of guinea I raised and released in different areas around property in south west Virginia. Most of them found homes on a hilltop near the very tall (should not have been planted, pine) that was built of a bunch of dead and decaying pine that had fallen (due to not having been harvested in a timely fashion as they were purposed for) and lay crisscrossed like giant pallet piles. The Guinea thrived. They also lived on the edge of the forest not far from the main production garden and the tick population dwindled rapidly as the weeks passed after they settled in. The environment, which included a year round creek and great tree, mushroom, and plant diversity, was definitely conducive to a successful series of guinea broods. I'm looking forward to creating space for more guinea in my life
