    I have 6 guineas that I got last spring. I want to get chicks this spring. Can I house them in the coop with the guineas?

    i would not house the older guineas with baby chicks, but when the chicks grow up a little they will be fine with the guineas. my chickens and guineas get alone just fine

    Guineas are very rough and typically do not do very well with chickens (especially younger ones). I would not recommend housing them together.
