    Either I have a cockerel who swings both ways, or I was wrong about the sex of both my last guinea AND one of my EEs!

    As for the guinea, it never makes "bah-WEET" sounds, only weird R2-D2 chattery warning sounds. It got its helmet head and wattles fairly early, so I was pretty sure it was a male. But when husband went out to the coop this afternoon, our Mottled Houdan cockerel was mating with the guinea! [​IMG]

    I saw the MH try the same thing with an EE that I have assumed for weeks was a male, as the EEs pea comb has 3 distinct peas. The MH also tries to mate with a for sure female EE, as well.

    I would post pics but my camera is acting up.

    Now, was I wrong about these things or is the Mottled Houdan a little confused about his sexuality? [​IMG]

    Edited to add: If the roo is gay, no biggie. I just want him to be accepted for who he is. [​IMG]

    Sounds like he's just not too picky. I can't tell what sex my guineas are for the life of me. I thought I heard one buckwheating, but I haven't heard it in weeks. They're currently fascinated with their ear piercing, brain liquifying, internal organ jiggling shriek of doom.

    I have a frizzle rooster that is trying to mate with any and everything. Back in June our daughter was in the local fair. We thought the frizzle was a pullet...That is until the NIGHT BEFORE the fair. He jumped up on his feed dish and did the most pitiful crow I have ever had the pleasure of hearing. [​IMG] So she turned out to be "Rizo the Frizzle Rooster" on the offical fair registration papers... [​IMG]
    Well now that he is well onto his way to manhood he has tried to mount a couple baby turkeys-both female and males, 2 other roosters, our drake mascovy, 2 of our female mascovies, and a few hens. I think he's just testing his ground... [​IMG]

    I can not tell mine apart either, and I know the ear piercing, brain liquifying, internal organ jiggling shriek of doom sound you are referring to! LOLOLOL But I do hear the buckwheat sounds too (my friend and I call this the rusty swing sound). I was just telling the DH I wish I knew how to tell them apart. I guess when I get eggs, then I will know for sure. Which BTW does anyone know when guineas will start laying? Thanks. [​IMG]
