Guinea Fowl Free Range Laying

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Howdy,
Got our first spring with our Guineas. They are free range and cover around 2 acres, they tree roost. Been finding random eggs and the odd cluster of eggs around about. Ive never see a bird any of these being sat on by bird. Are these already abandoned or can they cope with prolonged hen absence ? Should I colate the rougue eggs into one of the nests? How long do exposed eggs have before they become dud ( unable to incubate )- it seems to blinking cold to me out there.
We're in South australia - Spring is coming!

Welcome!

Nice to have you with us, even though we're getting ready for the winter up here.

Post your question to the "incubating and hatching eggs" forum, I'll bet you can get loads of answers.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

This sounds like a behavior that may be normal for  guineas.  I imagine they have a season when they do brood eggs probably when they feel food  is readily available .  You may want to post on the "Guinea thread."   where the people certainly know much more than I.    Welcome to Backyard chickens.
