    We have a fairly large chicken coop in which we have 26 chickens (rangeing from 1 yr to 9 wks.), ducks, guines (4) and a couple of weeks ago we put in some bunnies (only 7 wks. old). They all seem to be doing fine, until today and it looks like something might be nipping at the bunnies. Would that be the guineas? I was hoping to keep them all together, free range, but not sure if that is safe now. Thanks for helping me out.

    My guineas trampled 2 of my ducks and a young goose to death. So I would vote no they really should not be housed together
