Guinea fowl are very gregarious and, once the breeding season is over, form flocks of some 25 birds which feed and roost communally.  Males often show aggression towards each other, and will partake in ravenous fighting which will leave other males bloodied and otherwise injured. They are hardy travelers on the ground and can cover 10 km or more in a day. They have a loud, harsh call when disturbed.
