    Still want Guinea eggs? Lock down started yesterday for training to lay in the coop. I found three eggs without even looking for them.

    [​IMG] Um, Robin, I am so darn tempted, but DH is in there saying, "No...no...please, no", LOL. He liked them so much, too, had them super tame. I might just let you send me a few if I get another broody, though. Shhhh, don't tell him... His reaction may be more about the 86 chicken eggs I set a week ago than the actual idea of guineas. I'm down to 76, but still, that's a lot of chickies!

    As you well know, the season is a decent length so if some how you convince him they're here for you. Just remember you need to be mobile to keep after these guys so no more oops on the steps.

    I really appreciate that! Thank you for thinking about me. Still have mostly lavenders? Those were my favorite.

    Except for the two opalines that have popped out of them the answer is yes.

    I don't plan on hatching out many of the eggs that are going to be laid and I remembered you said something about getting some eggs. If he didn't know what their eggs looked like you might have been able to sneak them in. That's about the only down fall of having a spouse who is an active participant in our keeping of birds.

    Yes, I see that having an involved spouse can be a downside in that you can't sneak anything in on them at all! The only hen I have who lays a small guinea shaped egg is one of the Ameraucanas, Nora. I can see it now, me trying to convince him that suddenly, Nora is laying tan speckled ones, LOL.
