    I have 5 adult guineas, 2 hens and 3 roos. Today, one of my roos is inside the barn, and calling like they do. I know chicken roosters will call the hen to the nest, just wondering if this is what the guinea is doing.

    He might be calling to see where the rest of the gang is. I've never had a male call a hen to the nest but they will call if they can't locate one of the guineas.
