Read Raising Guinea Fowl 101 and pay close attention to any posts made by @PeepsCA

My recommendations are to get a minimum of 10 guineas since they are a flock bird.  In my experience the pearl guineas seem to have a milder temperament than any of the other colors.  In my current flock the Coral Blues are the most aggressive with my lone Chocolate male being right behind them in aggressiveness.

 

I house my guineas separately from my other poultry and recommend separate housing to prevent the guineas from hassling the other poultry.

Welsummers, mixed breed chickens, Blue Slate turkeys, Sweetgrass turkeys and guineas.
