Keeping Guinea Fowl as Pets

8 Weeks - Time to Free Range!

Page 2

Eight guinea fowl are perched on a barn stall coop door.

Now eight brave guineas perch on the door!

Eight guinea fowl are perched on a barn door and under them are three cats laying and sitting in hay.

While the cats linger below.

Close up - Eight guinea fowl are perched on a barn door looking down over the edge.

And the guineas check out the cats.

A black with white Cat is laying in a hay pile watching six guinea fowl standing in front of a coop door.

Six of the eight guineas decide to venture on down outside their coop into the barn, while two guineas decide to go back into the safety of the coop.

Five guinea fowl are eating feed out of a persons hand.

The guineas outside the coop get a tasty treat of white millet.

Three cats are laying in hay. In the background there are seven guinea fowl standing in front of a coop door.

The cats do not pay too much attention to the guineas.

Two cats are laying in hay and looking at five guinea fowl that are standing in front of a coop door. Three guinea fowl are standing on the outside of a coop.

After a few hours the guineas try to get back into the coop by walking THOUGH the chicken wire. They seem to have forgotten that they flew out though the open top stall door. One by one I put them back on top of the door to jog their little memories. They will hopefully soon figure out how to get in and out. It will only take one guinea to figure it out because they all seem to copy each other.
