I was sorry to hear that one of my reader’s guinea fowl, which they keep as a pet, has suddenly turned violent.
I have a question about my guinea fowl. I don’t know if it is a male or female. I have had it for a year now and it has been a fun family pet. Yesterday it started to violently attack me and it stabbed my leg with its claw and now we can’t go outside without protection. What is wrong with my guinnea? I was told to put it to sleep but we don’t want to do that if we don’t have to. Please get back to me as soon as you can. Thankyou for your time. charity
I am sorry to hear that your guinea fowl has suddenly become violent.
There are a number of ways to tell if a guinea fowl is male or female.
Your guinea fowl could be ill as often aggression in animals can be a sign that the animal is in pain, so it may be a good idea to talk to a vet, but the decision is yours.
I hope this helps.
