    Guineas can get pretty aggressive with chickens. It may not start that way,but I've noticed that familiarity breeds contempt with them. The layer feed wouldn't be a problem. And yes they can get quite noisy.

    ok I guess I wont get them. A man the next town over is giving them away. I dont want my reds hurt. Wish I had room for another coop but that would put them too close to the neighboring house. thanks for replying.
