    good question, i was wondering the same thing. i know chickens and ducks get along pretty well together, at least my brothers do but they were raised together. my cousin has chickens, guineas, and a peacock, but not all penned together. im gonna keep watchin this post.

    I have a friend who keeps quail in a cage inside her barn with her chickens. However she had problems keeping ducks in the barn area with the chickens.

    Guineas can be kept with chickens, however they also can breed with chickens so use caution!
