    I have chickens and ducks living in my coop right now, everyone get along great. Next week I am picking up some more Silkies from someone who is moving and the asked me if I wanted their 2 Guinea hens. I would like to take them but would they get along? My birds have never seen a Guinea and I'm not sure if the Guineas have ever seen a chicken either. What do you think I should do?
