    I am new to chickens and I have I have 2 Australorps, 2 Black Sexlinks, 2 Americaunas, and 2 Guinea Fowl. The guineas are still young but if one of them is a male, is it going to be a problem with my other girls? I guess what I am trying to say is are they sexually compatible? Am I going to end up with fertilized eggs of half americaunas - half guinea?

    Guinea's "shouldn't" mate with chickens, neither should ducks mate with chickens ... Occasionally somebody didn't get the memo, but not very often.

    The Guinea's will more than likely hang out and forage by themselves, but can roost at night with the chickens ... Chicken breeds quite often inter-breed ...

    Even if you got a fertilized egg ... Nothing would happen unless it was incubated 21 days ... I think guinea's take longer ... ???
