How do you introduce 6 new guinea fowl to five territorial guinea fowl?

The best way I found was having the new guys in a pen where the other guineas could see them, they will fight a little thru the wire but so far none of mine have ever hurt themselves.
Leve them like this for a few weeks then gradually introduce them to each other, but keep an eye on them.
It could be a quick process or a slow process!!
& be prepared for a bit of noise & carry on from them.'
Have fun. :wink:
