We have 2 Pearl guineas that are our oldest, that will be 10 weeks Saturday that we got from our local feed store. Then we have our youngest guineas, that we hatched out that are pied pearls, a lavender and some pearls. They will be 8 weeks tomorrow. A little bit of back story about how it happened last time. A couple weeks ago, we had the guineas and silkies together in our brooder in our shed, and we had a man outside building our second coop for the silkies. I went out to check on them, and I noticed a few of the younger guineas had some cuts on their face and around their beak, but the one that was bleeding the worse was the lavender. We thought that they may have been fighting each other, so we decided we would move the guineas out to the coop. (We were waiting for the man to finish the coop to move the silkies and guineas at the same time.) So we went and put neosporin on their cuts, and moved all of them out to the coop so they could have more room and could eat grass, and with-in a couple days, the cuts had healed up and everyone was fine. We are now guessing instead of them fighting, while they are eating out of the feeder everyone has their heads down so we are thinking that the guineas are stepping on each other's faces while eating and accidently hurting each other with their nails. Well, yesterday while checking on the guineas, I noticed that one of our oldest, who we call Private's(Got the name from a TV show) beak looked red.. So to get a better look I went in the coop, trying to get pass the swarming guineas that are at my feet, grabbed Private and got out and saw that it wasn't on her face, it was on her beak. It looks like somehow a small part of her beak or something below her left nostril had been torn off and was bleeding.(Not her nostril though, below it.) So we took her in, dabbed some of the blood off and put some neosproin on it, and this morning it looked like it may have been trying to heal, but since it was red the guineas kept pecking at it. I also noticed that Private was acting more sleepy and actually flew up with Rika, the other oldest guinea to the perch and was falling asleep while the other guineas are below, running around. It seems like everywhere Private goes, Rika follows and Rika's the only one who doesn't peck at her, almost as if protecting her. Because the lavender flew up and was bothering Private, I went and took Private out and put her in our brooder out in the shed and I brought along Rika as well, because she was already freaking out about being in a new place, being alone made her even more scared. I gave them food and water. Now, what we are wanting to know is there anything else we should do about her beak other then neosproin? The last time this happened, no one actually ever had this happen to their beak, it was mostly cuts around the beak, and sometimes at the nose but that healed up pretty quick and none of them were pecking at each other that time. We're going to try to figure out something else to do about the feeder to hopefully perhaps stop them from stepping on each other so much. Thanks alot. Here's a few pictures. Sorry they are so blurry. But to hopefully just to let you see what it looks like. Hopefully it doesn't hurt her too much. This is a better quality picture, and shows what it looks like. Sorry it's so blurry. My mom handed me the camera and I couldn't take pictures and hold the guinea at the same time easily. lol Another picture from the front. This is the other side of her beak.
