A few summers ago my grandfather , who lives down the road from me, bought 12 Guineas. Ten of the twelve joined the neighbors flock of guineas. After a few failed attempts to bring them back home , we eventually just left the ten with their new owners. However the other remaining two decided to stay closer to home and took up resident with me and my flock of chickens. When I started out raising chickens a few years back I only had two hens and one rooster. I only sought to raise chickens merely for the eggs. now I have a flock of 9 hens and 7 roosters. Crazy I know. I won't kill any of my animals. I give a hen and rooster set every now and then to friends thinking about starting their own flock. I chases a rabbit there.... So anyways the funny thing I wanted to share was about my Guineas. Since I have so many roosters it's expected to be a fight every now and then. However they rarely ever do fight. But the times they do my Guineas will always break it up. The guineas can be half way across the yard and see a couple of roosters starting to fight and they will run across the yard to break it up. They don't try to join the fight , they merely run up to one of the roosters and puff up. Then the two roosters will calm down . I have never seen anything like it. Funny right Anyone got any stories similar? Or might know why the Guineas go out of their way to keep peace in their flock?
