    Howdy all

    New fowl raiser of a pair of guiene (11 months old) and 6 chicken hens. Quienes act like they don't like one another and male chases everyone. Hens are happy in never never land, layin 4-5 eggs /day. Are weird guienes actions normal?

    If you are talking about guinea fowls, then yes males do seem like bullies but that is normal guinea fowl behaviour. They don't act anything like other poultry

    Hi :welcome

    Glad you could join the flock! Sorry but I don't have experience of guineas. Posting in the guinea section of the forum should help you with the answers you seek about your guineas behaivour. Here is the link https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/45/guinea-fowl

    Be sure to ask any questions you may have, everyone here to help and very friendly.
    Enjoy BYC :frow

    Welcome![​IMG] I'm glad you joined the BYC flock.

    I haven't had any experience with Guinea Fowl, either. I definitely suggest posting in the Guinea Fowl section.[​IMG]
