When do guinea fowl start to lay eggs? I have 1 that is 6 mouths old.
thanks ours are 12 weeks old today so we probally won't get any eggs this fall. but thats ok, it gives us something to look forward to in the springThey can start laying as soon as 14-15 wks of age, but typically most Guinea Hens will start laying the Spring after they were hatched as soon as the daylight hours start increasing and the temps warm up a little.. Guinea Hens are seasonal layers and they normally only lay Spring thru Fall, but occasionally some first-timer young Hens will lay a few random eggs in the off season too (or in the Fall of the same year they were hatched).
