    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?

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