    Actually, my dog did. I found 4 Guinea eggs outside the front door. Bay, my Lab/Chow mix had apparently brought them one at a time.

    I kept an eye on her and she led me right to it:

    About eggs were nestled in the midst of some Yucca:

    The tips of Yucca leaves are like needles, so retrieving the eggs must have been treacherous!

    If the guinea saw the dog retrieving eggs shes probably gone to make another nest somewhere else.
