older guineas vs. new (2 messages)

Score: 2
I have a few older guineas, some might be "french" guineas, whenever I try to introduce the new guineas which are first kept in a pen until mature, the older guineas will try to run off the new ones. They will chase everyone of them all around all day. Has anyone ever experienced this? Is there a better way to introduce new guineas to the older ones? I thought of rounding up the older ones and keeping them in a pen until the new ones get use to the area. I have lost a lot of guineas from this because the new ones don't always come back.

You could try putting the older birds in a pen next to the younger ones for a few days. They will be able to see and hear eachother. We suggest this for chickens and it works for them. They may not be as aggressive with the younger birds when releasing them.
