    My sister in law has a guinea hen that has started laying eggs. They bought the guinea hen to chase off rattlesnakes. But now it is laying eggs and she is curious about where the eggs come from, as in where do they come out of the bird from. I tried explaining but couldn't. I can't find the diagram of a egg being laid. Does anyone have a picture. Also, have any of you eaten guinea eggs ?

    I've eaten Guinea eggs. The shell is thicker and the yolk is richer and deep orange almost reddish in color.

    Nope, tastes like..... well Guinea. Kinda gamey and a little tough. Better than Emu though.
