Guineas are great, but sometimes, they get in trouble, especially when they start getting into the vet or feed areas. The problem with fencing them out of areas, is that you pretty much need to fence top to bottom, full enclosure. This can get expensive with chicken wire.
So, we've been testing out cheap and long lasting orchard netting. Not only does it keep the guineas out of the areas they don't need to be in, it is very easy to install and should last a very long time.
We only have two guinea fowl left but as their number dwindled they seemed to be more curious about what we were doing and checking out the shop and garden shed...so far I just wave my arms but netting a few places would help. Thanks. You must have replaced yours that the coyote? got.

Guinea fowl--the African bird that is wonderful at eating ticks and bugs and has a call so shrill it can wake the dead.
