    I can only tell you that Guineas will beat up chickens badly, and seriously injure or kill, even a rooster.
    You should go on the Guinea thread and read up, not here.
    Good luck !

    My guineas were raised with chickens since they were a couple of days old. They roost in the same coop every night. The guineas can be bullies, but they haven't killed any of my chickens.

    This is just killing me! I raised the spoken Guineas from the 3rd day, with Chickens!!!!! Now this has begun. [​IMG] the few guys in the coop with them spent three weeks with them b4 they got there new coop at Matt's. they were all happy and now i think we just might have all gotten a bit bigger. Cant we all just get along? Merry Christmas Matt!!! Enjoy the Snow and give the kids, wife, and foul hugs!
    Peace,
