When will my guinea hens begin laying eggs?
Guinea hens typically begin laying eggs the spring after they hatch although if they hatch early enough in the year, they may lay some eggs the same year. Guineas mate and reproduce in the springtime. This means they lay most of their eggs in the spring but continue laying through the summer and slow to a stop in the fall.
Guinea eggs are about 2/3 the size of a chicken egg and have a much thicker shell that's harder to crack. The shell is a cream color and may feature some black speckles. Once you crack the egg, you'll find there is a higher yolk to egg white ratio in a guinea egg than there is in a chicken egg.
Hope that helps!
