    Porbably not until next Spring. Guineas are seasonal layers. [​IMG]

    My flock was hatched March 25, 2010 and at least some of them have been laying for a month. They were just over 100 days when I started finding eggs on the ground in their hoop coop. I've been getting five or six eggs a day this past week.

    Maybe they are laying now. They are excellent nest-hiders. [​IMG]
