The behavior you describe... (General Discussion)

by Barbara-NH @, Friday, December 01, 2017, 23:35 (15 days ago) @ ramdai

...where your hen extends her neck when you scratch it, is a common behavior exhibited by most guinea fowl. It is something they tend to do when they are relaxed, and it is thought to be a form of mutual grooming. Another guinea will peck between the feathers of the neck while it is extended. It may be because it is an area they cannot reach easily on their own, or it may just feel good. My guineas used to do it quite often, and it was so sweet to watch two birds that may not have been especially fond of each other spending some quiet, peaceful time together.
