    I have 2 guinea fowl and believe one of them may be a female. Yesterday, when gathering the eggs from my other hens I noticed that one of the eggs was very light - almost white with specks in it and wondered if it belonged to the guinea. Someone please help. Thanks!

    Guinea eggs are smaller than a hens egg and rather pointy on the small end.

    Thank you for your response. The whitish eggs I have been getting along with the brown eggs are the same size as the other hens but they are a bit pointy also but have some brown specks in them. Whoever they come from ~ they are delicious as I had 3 this morning for breakfast! [​IMG]
