    I have four silkies that will not get out of the corner of the coop. They are just huddled in there together. There are also six guineas in with them ,but I have not seen the guineas be aggressive towards the chickens anyone have any suggestions on what to do to get everyone to get along ?

    I know my guineas are bossy and if one of my chickens gives them an inch, they take a mile. I think the silkies are too meek to be kept with guineas and you probably should keep them separate. I just don't see it ever working unless you get about 20 silkies.

    Thank you very much for your input. I will start a new coop for them this weekend. Guess with fowl everyone just can't get along
