How do you tell the difference between the male and female guineas?

What my bird books have taught me is that the Helmeted Guinea male have larger wattles than the female. Some of the other breeds you have to go by what calls the birds make. The male will only make a certain few calls and the female the same. Thankfully I have the easy to see which is male and female.

The females make a "du-whahhh" sound while males make a more one syllable sound almost like a screech sounds like to me.

In my experience females make the "buckwheat buckwheat" sound and the males go "chi chi chi chi" and are quite loud when they do it. The wattles of the males are large and hang really low and the females have small wattles that seem to attach entirely to the face. Acurrate sexing can take a few months.
