I have 2 male guineas in my pen with my chickens and the guineas are starting to mate with my chickens succesfully barnie Will it create a cross between a chicken and a guinea?

While rare, it is possible although the offspring usually don't live a long time. There is a thread on here of a cross named Miracle...

If I get any guineas, and a male tries to mate with one of my hens, Sally the Speckled Sussex will kick his hiney!!!  She's in charge of the flock, now.  We had to get rid of our roos.  sad  Neighbors put up with them for OVER A YEAR and then FINALLY said they were driving them crazy and they had to go.  Of course they told us this the day after Thanksgiving, and we had to worry about finding them a home over the holidays.  Not fun. 

But we did find a home, they are happy!  big_smile

yes it can happen I have one now her name is Gretchen. She is about 8 months old now. Her daddy is a Orpington and mom is a Guinea. Chicken and Guinea are not together anymore. When she hatched she was black I know something was wrong. She sound just like a baby chick. When people tour my coop the are always look for the baby chicks but it is only her.

Yep, guinea fowl can mate with chicken.  The outcome is an ugly mut chicken.  wink

Your fences need to be horse-high, pig-tight and bull-strong

Life is simpler when you plow around the stump
