    Is there anyway besides sound to tell whether your guineas are female or male?

    Waddles can help distinguish the two. The waddles on the cocks tend to be longer and swept back while the hens are about 1/2 the size. The helmet on the cocks is also supposed to be larger but I haven't noticed a difference.
