    I'm not familiar with guineas but I don't think guineas can scare a rooster that much. I think it is a good Idea to hand feed him and give him water. Is he weak?

    I have no personal experience with guineas, but I've read that they can be very aggressive and that if they decide to attack something, it's usually a whole-flock effort. So it's possible that your roo had his tail handed to him at some point.
