Now that I would pay money to see on video!
Regarding time to go back in, our guineas wait it out until the deep dusk, a good 45 minutes or an hour after the chickens go in. At that point, DH goes out and supervises the cooping. Sometimes I go, but generally I am morning chores and he is evening coop patrol. Sometimes they just stroll in and sometimes he has to talk them in or even poke a couple out of a tree with a long pole.
But anyway, here's the thing: our lowest ranking guinea, the social reject like your one guy, is not allowed by the others to come into the coop until they are all roosting. So DH waits until the rest are in, tell them to "get up" on their roost. They're pretty good about doing that. Then he tells Prince that he can go in, and Prince goes in. So you may find that even once your reject guinea learns to coop you will have to wait and do him last. Hope this helps.
