    Looking for Guinea eggs. Color doesn't matter [​IMG] I'm down to two guineas.

    We are going to be strict on the format of the threads. The subject line should be brief and to the point. For example
    Wanted-Oregon-Muscovy Ducks
    or
    For Sale-Oregon-Muscovy Ducks-Pick up only
    or
    Trade-Oregon-Muscovy Ducks for Goose Eggs
    Threads not following this format may be subject to removal. Thanks in advance.

    Guineas normally don't lay until around May through October.

    Really? Mine has been putting out an egg a day since December. It's as I suspected- she's dumb. :p

    If she is in her first year they can lay crazy. The normal season is May - Oct give or a take.

    I am starting to get eggs....I have a mixed group of 18 guineas.

    I need to check to see if they are fertile yet, and then I can sell some.

    Yeah, she's in her first year. None of her eggs have been fertile. I only have one girsl and one boy, and they haven't been getting busy it seems [​IMG]

    MandyH You'll shoot your eye out!

    How many are you looking to buy? I have 18 guineas and 15 of them are females so I find quite a few eggs . Mine are pearls, lavenders, and whites and they all run together. I've got some in incubator coming out this week.
