    does anyone know at what age it would be good to put baby chicks in with Guinea fowl?
    I have 13 guineas and 20 chicks that are 6 weeks old I need to put the chicks in a bigger area and I was wondering if putting them in with my guineas would be ok. I have done it in the past but the momma hen was in there to watch over them. this time these are chicks I ordered. I was thinking of building an area where just the chicks could get to so IF the guineas got too crabby the chicks could hide out. I don't want any one injured or worse.
    What do you think?

    I would wait until they are full size before I tried putting them together.
