    Hello, I was wondering if anyone has had experience with raising guinea keets with Olde English Game Bantams? I am going to be getting guineas this spring and I would also like to get OEGBs (if not, then another type of bantam), and I would like to now if they will get along. Can they eat the same feed? Do they need the same heat requirements? And when they are marture, how will they do when I introduce them to my flock of 9 chickens? Will they get along? Fight? Will my new birds shy away from all the other birds? Will everything be OK?? Please help me.

    My guineas get along fine with all my chickens (including bantams).

    However, I've read there may be issues with the Guineas during the Spring mating season.

    You might want to post your question on the Guinea thread to get some expert advice.
