    Hello,

    I have a male Guinea hen named Henny. We got him and his siblings as eggs.
    He is named Henny because, when he was born he helped hatch the others so... We thought he was a hen.

    Recently his sister Dot passed away.
    R.I.P Dot.

    I feel that Guinea fowl are fighters. They never give up without a fight.

    Henny was squashed under a plate of sheet rock, if my Dad didn't get to the barn
    when he did, Henny would be dead.

    He got tangled in string, many, many times.
    Stepped in paint, many, many times.
    We even found him opening draws in the coop.
    He even ate Styrofoam that was in the draws.
    We find washers and bolts up the barn stairs.

    He is still alive!

    He's 9 years old and still trouble!

    Here is Dot:

    This looks like a Bronze which is a variance of a Royal Purple.

    Thank you!
    He is a purple heart/royal purple too.

    He kinda sits by one of my hens, he doesn't have contact to the other chickens though.
    He is okay right now. He is a little sad, but is still happy with his home,
    Was sorta mean to his sister Dot.
    He doesn't really miss her as much as his other friends that got killed by a fox in 2014.
