Oh they can and do.  I have a guinea cock that frequents one of my chicken hens that I have seen with my own eyes.  As far as fertilizing her eggs,  I know it is possible as well.  I don't think this is the usually though.  Look up guinea chicken cross in the search and see what you come up with.

You may see mating action but actual transfer of sperm doesn't Happen.  The crosses you see are from chicken Rooster to Guinea hen...  Or Peafowl Cock to Guinea hen. Dang I cant find the article I read.....

I don't have help at my place except the horse.... . She offers to hand you tools but usually they wind up across the paddock....  Or waived around till they fall on your toe.   Then she dumps the tool bucket looking for treats....   Then she gets disgusted when you tie her near her feed tub.

Thank you for the correction...this is good information to know.  Apparently the way to breed a guinea cock with a chicken is through artificial insemination, the opposite can happen, but is a rare occurrence.
