Unfortunately guineas cannot be accurately sexed from pictures.I haven't heard either one do a buck wheat call I can tell my other two apart but not these two. I've heard the white one do a male call but saw it eating oyster shell the other day and the first day I got it my male attacked it. The purple one makes this random call out but I've never heard it before it's like a squeal. My other guineas like to attack these two and they become submissive and make those low key eep eep noise. Now my other two guineas like to pick on these two so I dont know what these are the whites supposed to be male purple female I've heard the purple try to make the loud one syllable call also so I'm not sure :/ any comment opinion appreciated !
Hey thank you so much for taking the time to respond I've had so much going on since this post haven't really taken the time to get on here but here I am lol I deftinley agree with you pictures are horrible sexing tools lol I ended up keeping it (purple one ) because that was supposed to be a female , for another week and anytime it heard my for sure female guinea it and the White ( I was told white one was male) which seems right , started doing the shriek call lol, the White has never buck wheat and I've had it for a month now so pretty sure it is a male. The purple one im pretty sure was a male too due to the fact it would get in talking mode with the white one and never do any kind of other noises. So I ended up trading for another purple that was more certain female and by that night it was doing buck wheat noises.So the White still shrills and that's it so pretty sure that white one is a male and the one that was in the pic above the purple one male also but now I have FEMALE just swapped for another purple yay lol.Unfortunately guineas cannot be accurately sexed from pictures.
The big cupped wattles are claimed to belong to males but there are people who have hens that have big cupped wattles. The males are supposed to have bigger casques but a female Pearl Gray can have a bigger casque than a male Coral Blue will have.
The true test is that if it lays an egg, it is a hen. The "buckwheat" is a very good indicator. Hens can make all the male calls but males are not supposed to be able to make the "buckwheat" call.
There are postures that can indicate the sex but they may not work on low pecking order submissives.
There are other behaviors that can be useful in identifying the sex of a guinea but they also require the guineas to be adults and paying attention to their behavior.100 % agree lol thought maybe out there somebody was a sexing genius, but I literally only rely on noises
