    Welcome to BYC, and good luck with the Guinea fowl. Have them firmly acclimated to their new home before releasing them. They can be wanderers.

    Yes, I am most worried about that! I'm hoping we don't lose them all too quickly.

    Once they have become acclimated to their pen, only let half the pen out at a time. That way the wanderers will be drawn home to the calls of the flock.
