So I'm wanting to free range my 12 pullets on my 40 acres during the day as much as possible and looking for some 2- legged protection. I have 2 dogs but not yet sure if they will be help or hindrance. I really don't want a Roo because of the noise but not sure if guinea is better or worse for decibels.

Both.. and a goat! lol Seriously though... we watch over a flock of 12 (now down to 9) during the week and there has been a few times we have had to scare off hawks but that's all here on 75 acres during the day... however, he DID have 4 mature roos in the mix! If it was me.. and here in hawk and snake ville..(do you have a lot of day time predators?) I would have both! At least that is what our plans are. I have a friend who raised her goat with her chicks.. and they will actually run under it when there is a hawk.. wish we could get one of those too!
