I am a newbie to guineas. I am a quail lady How can you tell a male from female?
You wait till they are old enough to start making loud guinea noises. The females will make a two syllable noise that sounds like buck-wheat!
I think all of them are females then haha! they are 4 month olds and I have 5 of them
also the wattles on the male are bigger than the female, yours might be too young to tell that way though
here is a male in the front and female in back
I think mine are just too young...
Mine are buckwheating already and they are only 10 weeks old. From what I heard, the males never make the buckwheat noise, so that's the best way to tell if they aren't full grown yet. So I've heard, anyways!
Quote:Yes males do not make 2 syllabe noise, but females are capable both, single sound and buckwheat noise, so one need to listen to them carefully and not to make rush judgement as for their sex.
