    Can guinea fowl live with chickens in a enclosed pen and share a coop?
    I would love to have guineas, but I don't know if they would be able to share with my chickens.
    Thanks in advance!

    In my experience, they worked fine together. My flock at the time I had Guineas was a about 20 chickens and 3 guineas, so it would probably be different if you're talking a lot bigger of a flock.

    I only would like 3 guineas. They would have to share the coop.
    I have 8 chickens. Would that work?

    None of my chickens are aggresive to other chickens.

    I think so. Do you free range?
