    Can guineas live in the same building with pigeons? I have an 8’x10’ pigeon loft, and was wondering if my guineas would get along with pigeons.

    Do not know about pigeons, but mine hate doves. Whenever they land in the yard all the guineas fly over and chase them away [​IMG]
    They love hanging out with the ducks and follow them around all day.

    Mine hang with my ducks and chickensand believe it or not my Chukar. The funny thing is that my Chukar free range with the Guinea and all return every night.

    Pigeons usually stay up off the floor, guineas only roost when they are sleeping. I think they'd be fine, but you'd probably want to put feed for the pigeons up high where the guineas are not likely to get it, otherwise they will bully the pigeons away from the feed. I have pigeons, guineas, ducks, geese, and chickens that all free range together, the pigeons are always getting bullied away from the feed by someone, but otherwise they are pretty much ignored.
