    Disease is not an issue, Guineas pounding on chickens is.

    i grew my chickens and guineas up as neighbors in clear brooders and housed them together when they got big enough i now have guineas in 2 of my coops with the chickens and everything is great the guineas think they are chickens and my rooster thinks so to:p disease should not be a problem except if you bring an adult from somewhere else into the mix make sure you quarentine it for 30 days away from the others
