    For real. They're nutty. They sit in the maple by the house and oogle me until I feed them... [​IMG]

    Quote:It is hard to distinguish between male and female based on looks alone. You need to hear them. Females make a distinct 'buckwheat' call. I have 3 females, 3 males. I believe both pictured are males, as my females have smaller horns on their heads.

    A friend of mine ( an artist, which I guess explains a little bit [​IMG] says guineas remind her of Victorian ladies running across the yard holding up their skirts... [​IMG]

    I will until I'm told not too.
    They aren't mean to people, they rip feathers from my chickens though. They're spooky and flighty. I can catch mine, but they don't like to be held.
