I understand this is a forum mostly about chickens but I have Guinea fowl.. They were all raised together but due to dog piles etc one of the keets got a broken leg but has managed to get around just fine on one leg. As they grew gimp would just follow along with the pack in the rear but hopped right along. The past few days I noticed gimp not going into the pen at night and would want to just hide in the undergrowth in the woods. So tonight I caught him/her (its hard to tell sex on a guinea except by voice) and put it into the pen with the others.. They immediately started pecking on it until it hid its head under the feeder to protect itself. I know chickens and fowl have a pecking order and can be really cruel to one another but these were all raised together and now adults. Gimp I felt sorry for so I removed it from the pen and put it into a small raising pen by itself. I hate to let them peck him to death but too soft hearted to try to protect it.. I suppose I will let him go into the wild tomorrow and hopefully it will make it on its own and the nighttime critters do not get it. I dont know what else to do. Does anyone have any suggestions.
