    We just moved 6 keets out into the covered chicken run, in their own little cage for right now. I know they need to stay in the coop/run for about 4 weeks, but at what point can I let them out of the cage to mingle with the other birds (4 guinea, 7 SS)? Seems I recall last time the birds learned that their segregated cage was "home," and I had to teach them to go into the coop at night.
