    I'm thinking about getting 15 guinea fowl and I'm wondering how many males per female I should get. And if you have the knowledge, I've already posted this in Turkeys and Pheasants and I'm going to post this in Peafowl as well.

    Actually, with guineas, you can have as many males as you'd like. Males rarely fight unlike chickens. 5 females to a male would be okay but so would 2:1

    What am I supposed to do with extra males? I can't find anywhere that sexes guineas.

    You could sell/rehome them, plain just keep them or eat them if you do that.
