    When we had guineas, they did eat bees. However, they didn't go up to the hive and eat them right from the front of the hive.

    Yes. They will eat any bug they can catch. Mine chase and eat butterflies, bees, squash beetles, locusts, everything!

    the guineas would have to eat a lot of honey bees to wipe out a hive. I say give it a go.

    If they catch a bee in a field, they'll eat them, so will chickens but they would never deliberately go after any hives. I don't think you have anything to worry about.

    They eat bugs. A bee is a bug. I agree, they won't go looking for the hive, but they will eat the ones that fly past their faces!
