    I have 50 french guinea keets. They are about 3 weeks old now, but are already flying and perching.

    When can I put them outside in a pen and when can I let them free range?

    I keep them at the same standards as I keep chickens. They are from warmer climates too, so I figure 8 weeks before they can be turned out. And YES guineas LOVE to free range! They'll roost in trees too if you want them to...sometimes if you don't want them to.. [​IMG] Mine ignored their coop completely [​IMG]
