Spotting or identifying male and female guinea fowl birds is very difficult. In the picture below, the male guinea fowl (cock) is on the left while the female guinea fowl (hen) is on the right.
To identify a cock from the hen, you have to know the differences between the male guinea fowl and the female guinea fowls (physical body difference). They include:
|Male Guinea Fowl (Cock)||Female Guinea Fowl (Hen)|
|Have upright body structure||Body hangs lower to the ground|
|Have longer and larger wattles||Have smaller wattles|
|Makes one syllable call||Makes two to three syllable calls|
|Helmet is large||Helmet is small|
