    I have 4 Guinea fowl that are about 3 mths old that have bonded with my roosters. They follow them every where. The problem is now the roosters are breeding my young hens and when they do the guineas full out attack the hens. They are going to kill them. My husband is always having to run them off. Problem is school starts again soon and we won't be home to intervene. Please help.

    If the guineas continue attacking the roosters (and they probably will), you will have to separate them or get rid of them. Birds can inflict serious injury on eachother, and it can't be good for your roosters/hens to be constantly stressed out.
