I am new to guinea fowl, I bought four one week olds and three of them survived. Out of the three I have two females and one male. They are rather strange animals.
I assume that breeding season is close as the male and one of the females have paired up, the other female is scared of them. The lone female is often chased away or even attacked by the male. The attacking is very short lived and does not seem to be serious, it looks like it is for show. It is always the male who is showing aggression towards the lone female.
Is this normal? Will the aggression get worse as they start to lay eggs and breed? Should I remove the spare female or will she be ok? I would have thought that one male and two females would be fine, but now I am starting to worry.
Also, the guinea fowl are living in with some young pullets and a young rooster. Should I separate them or can they share together? Some of the chickens seem to be missing a few feathers on their head, I do not know if the guinea fowl did it or it was something else.
