do they mate all year or do they mate seasonally to
Ok Guinea experts!! I hav a flock of chickens 14 hens and 1roostr. I also have a male and female Guinea pair. My chickens are about 18 weeks. Guinea maybe 20 weeks. Not sure on them. Any how.. The male Guinea likes to surprise any random bird with a furious peck. A few days ago I came running out of the house to a commotion. I saw the male Guinea chasing my rooster with a beak full of his tailfeathers! After this, it seems my rooster has quit trying to crow. ( he was only learning yet) I also hav ONLY seen the rooster mate the female Guinea. Not any of his hens. Nor hav I seen the male Guinea mate at all. I guess I'm afraid that the crazy male Guinea is taking charge of my whole flock and the rooster just cowers.Any thoughts??
