If they do cross the offspring are sterile. I would assume that a male would have a combination of male characteristics of the rooster and the guinea. From what I have read fertility is very low if at all. Many years ago I had a chick hatch I believed to be a cross; it died within days-was weak and frail.

Agreed, any offspring will be mules, so it really doesn't matter which sex they are.

You could do a forum search for Miracle the chicken/guinea cross. There were some pictures on there, if you manage to hatch some, I'd think they'd look very similar.
