Mixed Fowl?

Asked July 11, 2019, 4:49 PM EDT

We are planning on restarting our flock in the spring and thinking of mixing things up. I was thinking of getting chickens and Guinea fowl, is it OK to have those birds share a coop and yard or should they each have their own space?

I would not recommend housing them together. Chickens can carry the Protozoa that causes blackhead but rarely get sick. Guinea fowl are very susceptible to blackhead.
