    I am very new to BYC, I just love this site. There are alot of great articles and I really enjoyed looking at the chicken feeders and waterers.
    Can anyone tell me if guinea hens get along with chickens? Thanks for any information you can give me

    WELCOME!

    Yes, you can keep guineas with your hens.

    My guineas free range very well with all of my chickens.

    Hi and welcome to BYC from northern Michigan [​IMG]

    The answer is sometimes. My neighbor had to separate his as the guineas picked on the chickens when penned for the night.

    [​IMG] & [​IMG] from Alabama. Glad you joined us. Ours get along very well with the chickens, but I've heard that the males can sometimes be bullies.
