    My guineas hatched on April 29th and I thought they would not lay until next year. In the past three days, I have found two little guinea eggs on the grass near the house. I wasn't expecting to have to look for any until next year?
     
  2. It's not uncommon for a early spring hatched Guinea to start laying a few random eggs in the fall as you are experiencing... Generally they wait until the next spring but not always, they can start laying a few random eggs anytime after say about 14 weeks...
