Some folks say 4 months. It depend on the type of guineafowl you have, all guinea birds look alike but differ from one another by their charastaristic's. Helmeted G usually lay after a year, while pearl,lavender,black,white usually lay around 4 to 6 months.. Other guineas may not lay until the next following spring

My to girls are about 14 weeks. Today I found a small egg on the roof of the little coop that didn't develope the shell yet. Is that common with young guineas?

for what I know most guineas begin to lay after a year. others may begin in two.
I've never had a hen laying between 4 to 6months.so mybe you should wait for the next spring

If they lay eggs in the wet season, how do eggs survive considering they lay them in the bush. Are the eggs waterproof ?
