    Here are some photos of my Rhode Island Reds (7 hens and a rooster) and 4 guineas. We believe 2 hens, maybe 3 and 1 cockeral.

    The Sebright is a... well..... chicken. hahaha Sorry for the pun. Haha The RIR is just as friendly as the hens. He's been here since he was a chick. The Sebrights we just got last weekend.

    Great pictures... I like the Sebrights too.

    I got Guineas for the first time this year and they just crack me up. I love to watch my chickens and Guineas together. Boy, are those girls LOUD!! I actually knew that before I got them, I like to listen to them, but it's an earful when I'm inside the coop and they are chatting away.

    Yes I hatched my guineas the first time and had 8 at one time. At least 4 hens in there. Gosh they were loud! This time we have 4 total with 2 'buckwheating' hens. Much less noisey but still rather noisey. Poor neighbors.
