    Yep, I'd say fighting as well. My 4 y/o asked me why they were fighting too, so I'd say that's it! They always seem to peck each others heads, if the other doesn't run off first.

    Quote:The ones you can hear in the video (ack-ACK, ack-ACK), those are the females. Their helmets are usually smaller, and I believe they have 1 wattle smaller than the other, but the only sure fire way is by the sound they make.

    they all look like they have been imbred or some other mutation... ugly things... but from other pictures they look normal if that exists in guineas...
