Is your dog really aggresive with birds? We used to have chickens run around and our dog left them alone... but that depends on the dog. I heard that they eat bugs, not sure about fleas. They are really annoying ugly birds... but if they do the job then why not?

There were Guineas where I use to board and they had babies and they would never shut up. Im pretty sure they ate ticks but im not too sure about fleas.

Ticks and mites, yes.

I did read one report that was describing an area of land as both "abundant in guineas and fleas" - here's the link. Penny Cyclopaedia of the Society for ... - Google Book Search
