Can you have too many male guinea fowl? - Page 2

post #11 of 12
I had 5 guineas raised together for a year- maybe all males-or 1 female. 2 days ago I found 1 dead in the coop. Yesterday I saw a guinea almost kill another guinea so now I know the culprit. I separated the target, but he and the others keep trying to get to each other. They usually free range all day. I don't want to have to keep the one guinea separate, but I don't want him killed either.

everybody says not to but I let my guineas incubate their eggs and the dads are awesome, (I keep my penned up during incubation time) they help the moms with all aspects of baby care. I usually have about a 75 to 85% hatch rate with very little baby problems.
