    He is about 10 weeks old (was hoping he was female, but, alas, NO..). He only tries to hump my guinea hen, probably because she is smaller, and maybe pheromones play a role as she has only recently started to squat.
    Can he make he pregnant? Considering how young he is and the fact that she is a different species, is this even possible

    I don't know if a 10 week old cockerel would be fertile, but yes it is possible to make guinea/chicken hybrids.
