My guinea and chicks are now about 6-7 weeks old. They have been raised together and still stay in the same brooder at night and never leave each others side while free ranging during the day. I dont believe I have any roos and the breeder told me she knew the guinea was a male ( which apparently is almost impossible to tell at 3wks). My question is , can 1 guinea be influenced by the chicks? Meaning habits and noise level. I also believe a pecking order has already been determined. The guinea seems to be in charge. They always follow her/ him.
