    Will Roosters hurt Guineas or vice versa?

    Guinea males will sometimes bully chickens, especially when there is a guinea hen laying eggs.
    I've never seen them fight the way two chicken roosters will.

    We have never had one kill a chicken, allthough we have had a female guinea kill other guineas.
