    Hi I'm Almondgoose and I am hoping to get some info on guinea before I get them. So I mainly worried about how the will get along in the flock my flock consistences of 30 chickens 20 bantams 2 geese and 3 ducks. Also how are guinea temperament tword other people and animals? I plan on getting just 2 a chocolate and a pearl so if a different breed come with different temperament it would be helpful to know.

    My recommendations are to get a minimum of 10 guineas since they are a flock bird. In my experience the pearl guineas seem to have a milder temperament than any of the other colors. In my current flock the Coral Blues are the most aggressive with my lone Chocolate male being right behind them in aggressiveness.

    I house my guineas separately from my other poultry and recommend separate housing to prevent the guineas from hassling the other poultry.
