    I was surfing around on e bay and found guinea eggs for sale. I thought they did not lay until spring?? I am dying to get my bator going. I'm just not so sure about guinea eggs now. [​IMG]

    I don't know for sure, but I'm thinking my two hens are laying. I have noticed them 'missing' in the mornings! [​IMG] I told my 4 y/o ( the resident egg getter) that if he found any eggs in the grass or the woods, basically anywhere other than where they should be, to not touch them and come get mommy!! I was told that if you touch the guineas nests, they will move them! I don't need to be hunting for duck and guinea eggs!! [​IMG]

    Quote:here in wisc my guineas have not started laying yet.. check where those eggs on ebay are located. It might be 'spring" somewhere..

    you should not have any trouble hatching them as long as they are fertile. what you will run into is a bunch of babies in about a month from now. If you can handle that, go for it..
