How do you add them to a flock of chickens? The guineas are juveniles and so are my chickens.
This is my first year of having guineas and my young guineas and young chickens were they same age. I found that the guineas were kind of flock-minded and pretty much avoided the chickens. As they have gotten older the guineas have gotten so they kind of roust the chickens but there is never any bullying. I think if both species have space to be apart you should not have any problems.
Hi and welcome to BYC - glad that redsoxs was able to help - I have no clue about guineas.
All the best
I've never raised guineas but here's a link to the Guinea Forum and I'm sure you'll be able to get your questions answered there:
Thanks for joining us!
Hello there, and my warmest welcome to the flock! I am quite pleased you decided to join us, please pull up a chair and make yourself at home here! I hope you enjoy it here as much as I have!
Well I had sucess! There is peace in the coop and I am relieved. When I first let the guineas go in the coop the roosters (2) both attacked both the male and the female. I had to take the most aggresive RIR rooster and put him in a separate cage inside the coop! But now everyone one is behaving. Whew! I even woke up early that next morning expecting a full on rodeo. I did not mind that the storm passed.
Welcome to BYC and congrats on keeping our peace! lol
Guineas are lovely fowl. I wouldn't think of being without them
