    When should female Guinea Fowl start laying eggs?

    Hi all! So I have some guinea fowl that hatched on May 24th. They ended up all being females, which was a blessing. I've owned Guineas for a few years but I've never had females- only males. So I'm super happy to have these. :D But my question is- when should they start laying eggs? They're...

    Baby guineas

    I put 12 eggs in my incubator. This was my first time incubating eggs, only 1 hatches but another make a crack but didn't make it. And since I didn't want that one to be alone I was looking and found 4 guineas that are only a week older. So I bought them and they look good so far.

    Guinea flock observations

    I just love my guineas. It's funny. Bare with me thru a story before I gush on my guineas. I swore up and down we wouldn't have chickens when we moved to the country. I had zero interest in the nastys. I grew up with them and had nothing but unpleasant memories. But we bought and overgrown...

    Guinea on nest of eggs most not hatching

    Guinea is on the nest and stays on the nest almost all the time. 3 of the eggs hatched between 2-3 days ago and are doing fine. In the nest 1 pipped and started getting out and another just pipped a bit. Those 2 died. I think the membrane got to dry. I have candled some that are remaining and...

    Guinea hens are showing weakness

    I went to check my guinea fowl coop this morning and found that 4 of my hens barely responded to my presence. The are very disoriented and have trouble walking, the worst of them cranes her neck inward severely when stressed (when I was handling her). The four hens are all last year's hatch and...

    Tapping Guinea Keet?

    Hi! I’ve come here because Google won’t give me a straight answer and I’m also a bit impatient.

    Guinea x Ring-neck pheasant Hybrid

    So, I used to have a bunch of ringneck pheasant and my husband accidentally left the door open and everything but one of my albino hens took off. I didn't want to get rid of her and she was lonely so I figured pheasants and guineas are both aggressive types of birds so I put her in the pin with...

    Hello from Washington State

    Hello! I have been raising chickens since I was a kid, though back then it was a family flock. Last year I started my own flock of chickens, and I couldn't be happier. There is something so pleasing about collecting eggs every morning. Generally I raise chickens for the eggs, and for their...

    Is this a guinea egg??

    I know it’s off their usual season and she is rather young (5 months) but this egg isn’t like the others and up to today I only had 1 egg laying chicken. All the eggs I have are from the chicken but you can see how different this one is.
