I just found a small, about 1 1/4 inch long brown egg in my guinea coop, laying in the floor. It wasn't there Monday when I cleaned the shavings out, so it is very recent, but I am amazed at the size. I have two sets of guineas, seven that are 11 weeks old and three that are 19 weeks old. The egg was found on the side the older guineas live in. The older group are Fred, Ethel, and Lucy. Fred and Ethel are a definite couple, they are together everywhere, and Ethel is a quiet one. Lucy is very vocal, just a few minutes ago she was standing up on a large rock buck wheating to the world, which is what she does all day. I think she is jealous of Ethel. My problem is with Fred, I am ready to let the younger group free range, (they have been in the coup 7 weeks). Every time I open the fence door to let them out, Fred comes around -goes in and starts chasing them and pulling feathers. Even if they go outside the fence he is chasing and plucking. I end up chasing him around with a stick, and herding the younger ones back in the fence. They are separated in the coup still, should I just wait until the younger ones are a little older, larger? They are mostly females, one I think is a male, and the possibility of one more male. I know 5 are females. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
