    Can someone post pics of what Guinea eggs look like.....I have one female guinea and have no idea if she is laying an egg a day. I'm getting a very round brown egg with ultra thick shell. Was wondering if this is possibly a guinea egg. [​IMG]

    Quote:Thank you for posting your pic of the guinea eggs. I don't think my guinea is laying yet. She's about 7 months old.

    Guineas are seasonal layers. Just because they reach a certain age doesn't mean they will lay. They start sometime around march here but aren't for sale at the hatcheries until may and in august it starts to get hard to find certain colors then by october the guinea farm has no more eggs or chicks for sale.
