i have 1 guinea hen who is working on her third nest this year. the first nest she had 35-40 eggs in it. that nest got destroyed. then she laid a second. she got up to 20 eggs in it and something got all but 8 of those eggs. i saved the 8 and they are under a black silkie hen ans under a white serama hen and are working on the their 6th day of incubation. well i have very skillfully learned the guineas hens call after she laid and egg so today 6,20,09 i followed the sound and found a third nest with 7 eggs in it. it is unusual for a guinea hen to have 3 nests a year and lay about 70 eggs? thanks to anyone who answers my question. im sure the guinea hen is very stressed. i feel quite bad for her.
