    I only have one male guinea (Screech). Screech was raised from a baby with one of my Buff Orpington (Claire). Claire is now his woman I guess you could say.

    Today, Claire was on my lap and he was not happy about it. He threw himself at my chair as hard as he could. I was completely caught off guard by it. Claire jumped out of the chair and ran off and then a minute later he flew into the back of my chair (hard).

    What is the best way to go about correcting this behavior.

    Thanks!
     
  2. Guneas bond pretty tightly, and in this case YOU are the competition! I do not think he will let up until the breeding season is done (much shorter days). You may want to consider getting him a guinea hen companion and isolating them for a while.
