My recommendation is to keep the chickens separate. Guineas have entirely different behaviors than do any other fowl. Only another guinea can understand guineas.

I keep guineas and chickens together.... they might not 'understand' each other but they never fight.
Have you been through a guinea breeding season?

I have kept guineas and chickens together. I will not keep guineas and chickens together again.

Chickens do not understand the races and chases or the attacks from behind with the feather pulling and feather breaking that guineas do.

Thank you for the info. My guineas are happy, though I plan to get some more in the future.
I won't discuss this on this thread any more we've kind of hijacked it.
