    I have 3 guinea hens and 2 roos. Last month 1 went broody, and they all contributed to getting the nest to full capasity. She sat on them for 2.5 weeks. Then got up and was done!
    Anyway, that was over a week ago and I haven't had eggs since. When will they start laying again?

    Are they free ranging? She could have started another clutch somewhere else.

    What happened with the eggs from her nest?

    We found one nesting in the woods and removed her eggs. No eggs seen since.. then yesterday we found her brooding on another clutch of 30 eggs ( apparently 2 of our guineas have been sharing a nest)
