    Hello all,
    I have a question about guinea hens, a friend of mine has two she no longer wants, and I really like them, but want to make sure they will get along ok with my other chickens. Any of you have any experience with them?? Thanks, and have a good night!

    Blessings,
    Dianna

    I keep three guinea fowl with my chickens and everybody does fine. The guineas will bully the younger birds away from food at meal time so they can eat first, but that's about it. They all sleep in the same coop, and they have taken a liking to one hen in particular and follow her everywhere. You could also try asking over in the guinea fowl section of the forums, a lot of people there keep guineas with chickens too.
