    I am going to move this to the appropriate catagory.

    I think you should separate them.

    Are you just plunking the two together? Or have you had one of them in an area where the others can be seen and heard? Introduction is important before mixing new birds in to a flock.

    Is it the drakes chasing the guineas? My single drake chased two of my hens and plucked their neck feathers out as he was trying to mount them. Now with 3 duck hens, he is much happier and leaves the chickens alone.
