I have Guinea cock who lost his mate last month and is grieving. He still calls and looks for her everyday. He has taken to calling my chicken hens over to get a tasty bug he catches but they ignore him. He is not causing any problem for the chickens but his behavior is breaking my heart.
Does anyone know of any available guinea hens in the New Hampshire area? I think what he really needs is a new companion. Mail order bride service for "Mr. I'm in Charge". Never thought I'd be doing this when I started keeping birds!😆
This behavior would worry me greatly. I would get my chicken hens into a self defense program and equip them all with whistles. A guimea offering treats to a chicken hen is akin to an old guy in a trench coat driving a windowless van offering candy to little kids......
Beware of the Guineas motives!
