I just rescued a healthy four-month-old Guinea Hen.

  1. When might she start to lay?

    They can start laying as early as 16 weeks of age... I'd give her a little time to adjust to her new home, and make sure she's got access to layer pellets and oyster shell. Hopefully you'll get some eggs out of her soon [​IMG] She may wait until next season tho, when she feels more comfortable and secure. Congrats on a new addition to your flock!
     
  3. I'm glad PeepsCA could answer your question -- I just wanted to say good on you for rescuing that guinea hen!! [​IMG]
