    We have guineas and chickens. They just started laying. I believe I found the Guinea nest inside the barn. I took them but didn't find any new eggs the next day. Should I put a couple back to get them to continue laying in that nest? Thanks

    I think whoever had the nest, abandoned it because you took all the eggs. Or it might be an older nest and a predator might have grabbed the mother.

    The hens is definitely safe they roost indoors. I'm just hoping she continues to lay inside the barn. Should I put a few back? Will tat entice her to use the spit again would more tan one Guinea use to same nest?

    Alright [​IMG] great to have you joining the BYC flock [​IMG]

    Guinea are picky bird and if they feel their nest is compromised they simply move it and yes they can count [​IMG]


    This lady got upset because I took 4 of her eggs so she went to another part of the yard and starter a new nest [​IMG]

    Please go to the guinea trend and join along and find out more about guinea habits [​IMG]
