    Yesterday while spending some quality time with my chickens inside their coop two of my lavender Guineas got into a squabble. Lord only knows what for!!! Any way I kept breaking it up . they are young, only about 3 mths. I don't know yet what sex they are. What I was wondering, do females fight too, or is it just males, and do males and females squabble too. They have been together from day 1, and this is the first time I ever noticed this.

    I'm not sure, but I think they all fight. I have one hen in particular that gets singled out for bullying.

    They'll work it out. We have 16 free range that are over a year old and have been together since birth that STILL occasionally squabble [​IMG] the whole pecking order thing and all.....
