Is this weird?

I have a young rooster that looks like this


And four guineas that look like this..... only younger


Those four guineas are constantly following that rooster around.


Should I be worried?

  Ohhh, how sweet! The barred rock coloring is sort of like guinea coloring so maby it's hero-worship?  I'm fairly sure they don't interbreed but don't know how close the species actually are.  I know ducks & muscovy do but the babies are sterile.  Soooo even if they do, there will only be 1 generation.  J.

Jerry, how cool is that!!!  I wonder, surely I do.  Like Jody said, when the breeds cross-breed like that, the offspring are called "mules".  I know that because I had a Muscovy that was progeny of a Muscovy bred with an Indian RunnerX and it did not have the red caruncles that the Muscovy had, they were black.  AngiH told me that and I looked it up and surely it was called a "mule".  Funny name.  YOu got some interesting stuff going on there, aren't you just loving having birds at your place?  I'm glad that you got into chickens and such, yeah!!!  Beautiful and most wonderful day, Cindi
