    As some of you know, i had a crippled guinea keet, and was trying to work with him so he could at least survive- finally today we decided to put him down, both hips were out of socket, one leg actual was on backwards- still sad- if only i could have done more- but now i have a single guinea keet in the house, 3 months old was scooters friend- how do i go about integrating one house guinea to the outside flock?

    if you have more guineas then just introduce him to them: NOTE- they will pick on him slightly just to show dominenecy. Guineas are very social. Just watch him with the others to make sure he wont get too seriously picked on [​IMG]

    Actually the flock will pick on the unknown bird until the point of death or until its run off.

    The only safe way is to put the single in a large cage in the Guinea coop, give them time to get used to the bird. Make sure that you have hiding places in the coop for when it is turned out.
