In the Brooder
- Sep 3, 2013
My husband and I had three adult Guineas, one male, two hens. We love them to death, they're so fun and personable and ours are very people friendly. Today, we got four more, about 3 months old, from a local seller. He told us we could immediately put them in with our flock and they would be fine. The babies seem interested in the adults but the adults are persistently chasing and pecking them. The behavior slowed after a bit, they seem to be settling now but I'm concerned. Is this normal? Should we separated them? If so, at what age should we reintroduce them?
