    What is the best way to get a Guinea to lay her eggs where you can find them?

    Keeping at least the females locked up in the coop for several days during laying season. Generally I let mine out after they've laid their egg for the day. I do this for about a week until they are trained to lay in the coop.

    And you have great results doing this?
    I will have to give this a try. They only lay during the spring right?

    I trained mine the same way. They lay basically April through September depending on your climate, they may lay a bit longer...mine laid through October and a week into November.
