    They will be fine together as long as they have plenty of space. Currently, I have guineas, peacocks, ducks and chickens all in the same building through the winter.

    ours all huddle up together in the coop at night and play well during the day. The only time there is an issue is when the guinea decide to freak out and fly around screaming, then the chickens do the same looking totally confused as to why lol.

    I' agree with them
    there usually no problem if were reared from younglings but sometimes guineas are stupid birds than an farm yard fowl. usually in breeding season they tend to play naughty and like to chase chickens impress female, but im happy on mine because they have their oun size, they don't stand a change of chasing our pheasants and peafowls, what we usually do when the breeding season is approc'ng we separate chickens and mix guineas with pheasants and turkey/peafowls, what i' see is male guineas are the main problem in the flock than females which makes me rid of them
