Guinea Fowl & Snow

.



 
 
 

Yes, guinea fowl do like to get out for some exercise and fresh air even in the winter. On a snowy, but calm day when there are no weather warnings or hazardous conditions, let them out! Prepare to help first timers back into the henhouse at night.  Some may freak out at their first snow, but as you can see in the picture below, they will get use to it, walk on it, and enjoy finding many seeds and such along fencerows and grasses that protrude through the snow.

This winter we noticed the guineas would hang out around some old windows and glass doors we have, looking at themselves and staying out of the snow. So we improved on it and leaned the glass doors and window on both sides of our fence and put some alfalfa on the floor of it. They love it sooooo much they make that
content sound when they are near it and in it (they have free access to their home at all time also, where their water and feed is) Before I took the picture they were all crowded in it, their feathers all smooshed against the glass, and sitting on the fence railings,but when ever they see or hear me they come running, so you get a picture of them starting to come out.... but I think you get the drift.             Sandra G.
