    I have two guineas that were laying several times a week. For the past month however I haven't seen any of there eggs. Do they hide them or will they stop laying for a period of time?

    Guinea fowl have a laying season. They start in the Spring and lay through summer and stop sometimes during the autumn months. This is because they don't breed during winter, so no eggs are required.
