    She'll lay a lot more eggs than that and when she thinks she has enough, will sit on them then. She'll probally collect another 10 before sitting.

    you are saying she has laid 5 eggs in 3 days? sure you dont have other guinea hens laying in the same nest? nothings impossible I guess, but not likely
