    Until recently, I always called them guinea hens the way we called pea fowl " peacocks," but in fact they are guinea fowl and pea fowl, and then guinea hens, etc!

    The hens are the females and the cocks are the males. Though many do it, it is improper to call both sexes "guinea hens". Guineas are cool birds.
