Can you get guineas to 'change' mates?

    I have 5 guineas, 3 chocolate and 2 buff. The buff are one male and one female, and the chocolate are 2 males and 1 female. The ones that are paired up are both chocolate/buff, with an extra chocolate roo. Is there anyway that I can get the buff's mated together, and the chocolates mated together? Like if I penned them up by color for a while, would they stay that way?

    Guineas do not pair off or mate for life like canadian geese or swans do.. They seem more like roosters and like them all! [​IMG]
    If you are wanting pure color offspring yes I would pair them off yourself.
