    While letting my chickens out this morning (they free range), one of my two Guinea's escaped. I bought them a week and a half ago. Have had them in a seperate cage for a week, and moved them into the chicken pen two days ago to start getting them use to where "home" is. I only have two of these "redneck peacocks", and the other one is still in the pen. The other one is out having the time of it's life with my 15 chickens. Will it come back to the pen with them tonight, since the other one is still locked up?
    Thank you in advance.

    If ones in the pen theirs a good chance hell come back. They have excellent flock instincts.

    Like kevin said they have great flock instincts.

    Bet ya if the other one in the pen is alone it is having a fit about now.
