I have never had a guinea hen but this past winter one showed up on my porch and has not left since. We love having her and she has been pretty self sufficient. She has found her own safe places at night around my house and I have just helped by feeding her seed to supplement when she couldnt find food over the winter. Recently she had been hard to find and I thought she may have left or been killed. I wound up finding her and a nest hidden under a bush in front of my porch. I have heard the eggs would be blank because there is no male. What will happen when she realizes the eggs will not hatch?

 She will probably abandon the nest when nothing hatches, but, guineas can be even  odder than chickens, so who knows.  You can ask on the "Guinea thread."  they would know much better than I.  Do you think she has a secret boyfriend?

Hi and welcome to BYC - glad to have you onboard with us. Sadly, i know squat about guineas, and DDs advice about asking on the guinea forum is what i would also suggest.

 

All the best

Haha no i dont think she does. I dont see any other hens in my immediate area. She probably got separated from her family over the winter and just stuck around when i started feeding her. Thank you I will post on the guinea thread. Didnt realize there were specific threads.
Thanks!

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
