My neighbors (a half mile up the road) used to have a fairly good sized flock of guinea fowl but, for one reason or another, they have been whittled down to 3 cocks. Last spring I added 6 hens. Now those cocks have moved down here, spend the night roosting in a fir tree(even when it was 20 below last winter), and wait every morning for me to let the hens out of the coop. This is one of the males sitting outside our window first thing in the morning asking me to please let the girls out. Aw, never over estimate the power of sex.
