    How long is the laying season? My guinea used to lay there eggs in the nesters with the chickens and I did find a nest out in the field 3 weeks ago but not eggs since.

    Mine start laying in Feb and finish up in Oct but i think it may depend on your area.
    Perhaps there is somone here from your state can give ya a better idea.
    If ya were getting eggs and then nothing i would bet they are laying in a hidden nest.

    My guess is they have a hidden nest that you have not found. Have you noticed that any of your hens are missing?

    They should lay from April till September. They have a nest somewhere, you just need to find it before one starts sitting and becomes coon-bait! I follow them. It's a pain in the butt....but I figure out where the nest is by checking everywhere they hang out. Check in piles of brush, fallen trees, high ferns etc.
