    Only because I was trying to help, I did a google search on artificial insemination of guinea hens, and there was quite a bit of discussion of the topic to prolong the egg laying season, but no "how to" web pages. I also noted a few "pop-ups" for "fertility treatment" ads in google, so I may have to call you as a witness in the event my wife discovers this google search and kicks me to the curb.

    Also, I think if you posted this in the Guinea Fowl section, you may get a better response than here in the Quail section. If you posted this here in error, you can contact a moderator to see if they can move it for you.

    Good luck on your endeavor; the Guinea that they showed looked like a very nice bird.

    I've seen it in commerical turkey operations. I'm not saying it's not posable but in the videos on youtube it sure looks stressfull on them and I wouldn't want to stress out something so rare and not so domesticated instincts. That's only a opinion.
