    Can anyone tell me if they think this might be a guinea egg. I have 6 old hens who lay regularly and our guineas are with them. Guineas are about 7 months old and I think this might be one of the first eggs from our 3 female guineas. Apparently 2 eggs were laid but one had a shell so think that it was broke and laying just outside the nest. This one is intact. About a week ago I got 2 mis-shapened with no shell just a rubbery kind of outside.

    The egg on the right is kind of a lite tanish color and our hens don't lay that color. We do have ameracanas but they lay the green eggs.

    Could this be my guineas starting to lay?

    I'm not sure. Its hard to see in that picture.
    Here is a picture of my guinea's eggs. (the dirty greenish blueish eggs at the top are duck eggs)

    Thanks, I will keep watching and see if I can see the guineas in the nests. These eggs are in nests that my hens don't usually use.

    Hubby just said to check the egg to see if it is a fertile egg -- we have male and female guineas but only have female chickens. Will let you know if I find anything out for sure.
    Thanks
