We have several guinea fowl on our farm in Grays Chapel, North Carolina. Most are hens, but we do have two males. For the past couple of days, they have decided to see who is the most dominant, and have spent the afternoons and evenings chasing each other around the property and sparring. In the image above, our pearl male streaks across the yard after his rival.
