    Do you mean what time of day? I think they can lay any time just usually not at night or early morning. Probably middle of the day. Listen for the noise of the other guineas and that usually indicates there is a female laying.

    mine will lay between 11 and 2 just watch for her mate to be her lookout while she is laying. if you get to close he will holler and leave the area. she wont be far from him. hidding very well.

    They will sometimes lay a few like this in the fall. It should stop soon but they will start back in the spring in full force. About March till June here in Texas. Guinieas usually do lay in mid day.
