This is our first time with guineas. We raised 6 keets with most of their brooding time spent in a wired off corner of the coop. At about 10-11 weeks or so, I let them out to join the free ranging chickens. One separated from the others and spent the first night outside, while the other 5 stayed in. The first few nights were random as far as who roosted with the chickens in the coop and who stayed out. Usually 3-4 were in and 1-2 stayed out. It's now been about a week and I routinely count 5, so I'm pretty sure one is gone for good or already got picked off. However I've noticed something curious about the group. 4 now always roost inside but the fifth is kind of a toss up and usually stays out. Every morning we get to hear just the one sounding his sonar, however the others don't respond. Once out for the day, the 4 usually stay together but the fifth remains alone. It continually sends out its call, but the others usually don't respond. If the group of 4 all get separated, they reform. But loner appears to be an outsider. Worse now is loner seems to have developed a limp. I guess my question is; what is in store for our little loner? Will it ever try to join the others, or will it just keep sending out it's constant sonar to no avail. I really don't mind most of the noise the guineas make. Actually I find them very funny and oddly enjoyable. Just not real fond of hearing 3-4 straight hours of location chirping when it's obvious where all the others are. Thoughts?
