so i am seriously thinking of getting guineas, well the problem, they would have to be in a pen with my three hens as my dog is not trustworthy at all with livestock/birds. but that is another topic.maybe someday my dog would actually act like a lgd and not want to chase/kill and then i could possibly free range for at least half the day, but i dont know if the would go back in the pen like chickens do? would they still eat ticks in the pen? are they super loud all the time? i live by a bunch of trees and i always get ticks, my hubby doesnt and my dog is on flea/tick prevention but my goats get them once in awhile.
