Will Cockerals mate with more than one hen or are they monogamous?
They are more like chickens - a guinea cock will mate with several hens.
If you have them running out, and have a good many, usually they will pair off with about 4 hens with one roo, but if you only have one roo ,will take care of all the girls
If you have even numbers of cocks and hens, they should pair up. If there is an abundance of females, the males will take care of the extras most times.
I only have one male and one female so I am really no help but I have heard that they are like chickens!
Thanks for all the wonderful input!
I find that mine tend to run around in groups of 3, 4 or 5. They seem to be the same groups most of the time with slight variances. But, yes, 1 male with service whatever females he can get around to, not a problem! I am sure there is a magic number for the ideal ratio though!
