Keeping guinea off patio

You may have noticed a few posts from me today. LOL. I just became aware of this forum and am so relieved. I have a question about keeping our guineas off of our patio.  I just added a new fake "owl" that has a swivel head when the wind blows.  I may need another one but thought I would give it a try.  Does anyone have any other suggestions?  As you know, they can make quite a mess.


Welcome to the forum, Karen. Unfortunately, it looks like I'm the only one around who's answering questions. Sorry for being away for so long. Hope others will chime in with responses. I think the owl should help to keep your guineas off of your patio. You can also try adding some colorful surveyor's tape (tied to stakes and raised about 4 or 5 inches off of the ground) or anything that moves in the wind (pin wheels?). These tricks will work for a while, at least until the guineas become accustomed to them. Anything new might keep them away for awhile as they are cautious when approaching something they haven't seen before.
