First year wintering chickens. They are warm, fed, and watered daily. We have 13. Bantams. Mixture. However we have 2 guinea hens and one of them seems to be keeping the rest away from food and water. Even the 3 roosters. They are all huddled up under our bunny cage and won't come out. I have noticed water consumption slowing down greatly and can tell some are losing weight. Some are still laying. I have lost two this past week. Should I remove the guinea?

I would remove the guineas, or at least the one causing trouble. If you have enough room, or free range your birds, you could also try having more than one feeder and waterer spaced far enough apart so that the bully couldn't watch both feeders at one time.
