    If i keep a few guinea hens with my flock of chickens, will the guinea eggs be fertile/hatch? (im going to get some guinea fowl in the spring and i will get rid of the males) and yes i have roosters

    Its possible, but not likely. If they do hatch they usually don't live to maturity. I have seen the hybrids online, but never in person. I think one of BYCers had one hatch a while back, but it did not live very long.
