I have 3 ten week olds and when I went out there this morning, I found two of them fighting and my 20 week old roo trying to break it up. They kept grabbing eachother by the skin on the head and waddles and wouldn't let go. I didn't see any obvious bleeding but they didn't stop until my dogs broke them up by trampling through them. I know one is a female so far as she does the buck wheat call but don't know what other other two are yet.
Is this normal for their age? Oh and they free range with my small flock of chickens.

What do I do?

Yes, I've got it too. See "Guinea Are Evil" thread. I do get the blood from them pecking each other and from them ramming into the wire fence.


I can't free range, but I did let the guinea and their chicken coop mates out for the last half hour of daylight last night. They were still fighting in the yard.
