    I found something extra in the coop/run today. Pretty sure it is a guinea egg only I thought my guineas were still too young to lay. Guess i was wrong. [​IMG]

    Yep, looks like a Guinea egg to me [​IMG] Guinea Pullets can start laying as young as 14-15 wks old... tho with Guineas typically being steadfast seasonal layers (Spring-Fall) it's not all that common to find many Guinea eggs this close to Winter. But some Pullets don't always follow the rules... obviously, lol.
