    I never put mine in with my chickens until they could fly. That way they can get away from any that want to bully them. They all develop their flying at diff times , but once one starts, the others follow. I put my guineas in with my chickens in a small dog cage for a while so that the chickens can get used to them starting at 3 months. Eventually they all get along fine !

    Sounds like a good idea. What did you do about food? I think the guineas need a higher protein food.
