My Guinneas run loose over several acres, but come home to eat. I went to feed this morning and there was 3 babies in pen eating with 3 other big ones. I trapped the 3 babies and 2 others in pen. Question is should I try to heep or just let them run with their flock. I'm sure there was a lot more but these are what is left with all the snakes, coons and othe wild critters out here

Your best chance of keeping them alive is to keep them shut in, in a secure place. The hens dragging them through wet grass seems to account for the most losses.
