Rebecca seems to really “get” guineas. Their alarm goes off at anything new or different. We discover our new born foal had arrived, my old silkie rooster was in the pool, MANY snakes, and that the fed ex guy dropped something off;)
They can be hand fed pets if you take the time when they are babies. All of mine come running when I got outside because they hope that I have meal worms? The males might run at you or anything else seen as a threat, but have NEVER jumped on anyone in my family, unlike the multiple roosters we have rehomed because they spurred the blood out of my children.
