    a few weeks ago i posted a question because my turken wants to be a duck. now i have a rooster who preferes guineas. i have 3 roos for my 8 hens. yeah i know way too many. i'm trying to fix that. but lately the roo lowest on the pole is finding the guineas appealing. even my males. what makes it even worse is the guineas are allowing this. [​IMG] what is going on?

    I believe I read somewhere that chickens and guinea can and will intermate.... you might want to do a search and find out--not just take my word for it.........

    OMG ... they are *beyond* ugly. Check out this link:

    The naked neck / guinea cross looks like a bloody vulture.

    My lowest rooster, my EE, has been after the new guinea hen who adopted us. She isn't real happy about it, but he seems to like her. [​IMG]

    Besides, you'd be the only person at the fair walking around with what seems to be a mini vulture in your arms.....


    With that being said, I want one!!!!!! Yes they are ugly, past ugly even, but they look weird, and well, weird things typically end up at my house (aka, the zoo).
