    Yes, most of the time. We have had guineas with chickens together without problems many times.

    I got 1 guinea in a pen with chickens (the 2 boys became owl bait, they escaped and I couldn't catch them) she lays one egg a day under the nest boxes. she dosen't even make a lot of noise. very quite for a guinea.

    I'm another one that has chickens and guineas together. They free-range during the day and share a coop at night. I've had groups together for over 4 years without problems.

  7. Ours live together as well with no problems. The guineas range out further during the day.

    I have 11 chickens in with 2 guineas. They get along fine as long as you have enough room. I have a 8 by 8 coop so there's plenty of room!

    Good luck!
