you can put a divider in the brooder to allow him not to feel so alone (like a wire wall). You will eventually want them to be together anyhow right? A 5 week old will not need the heat thet a 2 week old needs...so keep him on the far side of the heat source. A 2 week old needs a heat of 90 degrees where a 5 week old has most feathers and needs only 75 degrees.

You can also put a mirror in there so he will think that he is not alone. Guineas love to see their reflection.

Have fun smile
