Watched a show of his in which a group of guineas was being chased across a field by a dog playfully. He said something about a "group of guinea hens".Now, I expect more of the great Jack Hanna! No way he should be calling the entire species "guinea hens" so I emailed him, complimented him on his shows, then gently corrected him by telling him the proper term was guinea fowl, that only the females were hens, the males were cocks and no one could tell the sex of a group of them running in the distance like that, though I realize many folks make that mistake. Then, I of course, wished him a fabulous 2012. Hope he isn't mad! Sorry, couldn't let it slide from someone like Jack Hanna, of all people, who really should know this.
