    Tried something new this week. I have a pen of lavender guineas in an outdoor pen. I had some of this years hatch in a pen in the barn. They had never seen eachother but I need to move them outside to the lavender pen. As many of you know, guineas can be very mean when you introduce new birds. I put the inside guineas in a small wire cage to move them outside. Then I put them in the pen outdoors and left them in the wire cage all day and night(with food and water). I came out the next morning, opened the wire cage door. Out stepped the guineas and right in with the others. Not a single fight or scuffel! I was really shocked how well it went.
