Everyone knows that guineas can have the potential to be big chicken bullies. This year I thought I would experiment with my chicken/guinea flock. This year I had two clutches of guinea eggs hatched out and raised by chickens. When they hatched my husband said the hen probably does not know she is raising a bunch of "terrorists"!! The results were stunning. The guineas which now roam free (fly out of chicken pen) etc but still LOVE the chickens. Fact is they still remember the mama chicken!!! When I let the chickens out to play they run with total excitement about the thought of playing with their chicken "friends". No aggression what so ever. What is totally AMAZING is they STILL love the MAMA. They roam with her, dust bath with her, look for pickings with her as well as others and at night they roost side by side with the chickens, no arguments at all!!!. Truly amazing. SO, if you want "chicken" friendly guineas. The key is to let the chicken hatch/raise the guinea!! In the photo above the buff was one of the mama's and the guineas are all around her discussing the good pickings and offerings of the day. Next I just have to share the beautiful colors I added to my guinea collection this year. Also put in with Mama chickens when they were young and Mama adopted "anyone and everyone" These are the Coral Blues - IMO coral blue is just exquisite coloring. Our Royal Purple - gosh this is a beautiful bird - the color is elegant and rich - named appropriately - the "royalty" of colors - ready for the "Black Tie Affair".
