    Ok. I hope you get it working. Do you know how old the bantam and Guineas are?

    The bantam hen is a couple years old shes been laying but hatched some babies and has just left them. . . So Im not sure if shes starting back or the guineas are starting to lay . . . They are around 4 or 5 months old

    Guineas usually lay eggs at about 8-10 months old so it is probably the bantams egg.

    Thats a banty egg. Guineas are shorter and usually have light pink speckles.
