    Mine have always been very friendly and laid back...including the roosters.

    Mine are very calm birds. They are friendly enough and would probably be more friendly if I handled them much.

    I received mine from my aunt at six week old and it was not handled much. However, it is very calm and is really starting to warm up to me.

    Mine were very calm and layed back. They only got excited about being let out to free-range. I had a spare rooster that lived with the guineas (appropriately names Spare) but I think they drove him crazy. He got super aggressive. Other than him, I never had any problems with them. They are just big feathered sweethearts.
