    beautiful. How very lucky you are. Have you noticed anything different in their call ? Sexing guineas is not easy to do by looking at the birds, although in older adults the helmet and wattles of the males are usually larger. The easiest way to sex them is by voice. Both males and females make a single syllable, machine-gunlike alarm call, but only the females have a two syllable call. It sounds like they're saying "buck-wheat."

    Very beautiful birds, but 3 years and no egg? Hope one of them is a female.
    I was researching this, and the only visual difference seems to be the size, females are slightly smaller. Other than that they look the same. (Except when the females lay an egg!) I also read that the males can be more aggressive.

    edit: granny beat me to it!
