Hey everyone! We have 11 Guinea fowl (6 hens and 5 cocks) and are expecting eggs soon. I have a few questions. A. When do guineas start laying their eggs? Are they laying now, or in March and April? B. We have two chickens and a rooster. Will the chicken hens raise the keets once they hatch, or do they have to sit on the eggs first? c. I have heard guineas are terrible mothers. Our guineas are getting very hormonal and really seem to want to raise young. Should we let them and loose some or eat the eggs and keep the keets from being picked off? d. Can this many guineas defend there young from cats? We have one who is a killer. Would the mother guineas fight back? By the way, the environment around our house is dense patches of woods with large open areas. in case that helps. We're in Eastern NC.
