    Hello, I was wondering if anyone has had experience with raising guinea keets with Olde English Game Bantams? I am going to be getting guineas this spring and I would also like to get OEGBs (if not, then another type of bantam), and I would like to now if they will get along. Can they eat the same feed? Do they need the same heat requirements? And when they are marture, how will they do when I introduce them to my flock of 9 chickens? Will they get along? Fight? Will my new birds shy away from all the other birds? Will everything be OK?? Please help me.

    I fed mine all the same because they were all in together, and same heat. When I introduced them to the rest of my adults they stuck together. They are older now and don't hang together anymore. My roo was disappointed when the guineas started to hang out with the adults. He lost his little flock but they still seem friendly to each other.
