    Hello! I am new to raising geese. I am considering putting two guineas with them. Will it work or will they just chase each other?

    I have a friend that free ranges Geese and Guineas together without any issues (no coop or pen, fully free range), they usually do their own thing all day then the Guineas go roost in her barn. I have a Turkey and Peafowl in with my Guineas, and the Guineas do not mess with the larger birds, and I can't imagine the Geese taking any guff from just 2 Guineas... but it's hard to say how things will work out in your coop. Give it a try, but you might want to have a back up pen for the Guineas if it doesn't work out.
