one of the lavender pied males is over 6 years old
theres five that are under a year and one just over a year old

Handsome birds Cole, Pieds are so attention catching, gotta love all that flashiness!
And your old guy isn't really that old... healthy well cared for Guineas can live 15 yrs+!

yea i know they can live long but hes pretty dang lucky to live as long as he has
with as many predators as hes seen/as many of his buddies as hes seen die hes extremely lucky to be living

In my experience with my 6+yr old full-time free range flock... the more of their flock-mates that they witnessed get taken by predators over he years, the smarter the remaining birds got about surviving. Wise ol' bird you have there... hope he passes his survival instincts on to the rest of the flock, and future generations
