I have fourteen Australorps that are suddenly being terroized by my stealth guineas. They free range during the day and all pile into a very large coop at night (used to be tack stall) and have pretty much got along until now. I love my three guineas, but I put two of them in a very large dog crate today because I am tired of them running up to my hens and attacking them. I am not talking about them just pecking them. The hens flatten out to show the guineas they are boss and they jump on them and continue to peck them and grab their combs. I think I may have two males and they are frustrated. But they are not trying to mate or anything. The third guinea was suffering from an impacted crop, yeast I think because yogurt has cleared it. You can tell it still does not feel very well. I don't know what to do. I tolerated their behavior of running up and pecking a few of my bantams (who they grew up with as keets) but this is silly. One guinea grabbed a tuft of feathers out of one hens neck and ran around with it in his beak like a prize!!! Grrrrrrrrr!! I am not sure what to do other than buy an Australorp Roo and let him take care of it! It is pretty random. They behave themselves, walk around the hens like it's no big deal then start chasing one. No one is facing them, pecking them or anything. Now I have seen a hen fluff her neck feathers but it has only been after she has been chased and it is making nervous sounds and walking AWAY from the guinea. I am suspicious is the heat in Texas is making them all crazy!!! I don't get it. Any ideas?!?!
