I'm a little late getting this post done, but I wanted to let you know about guinea eggs. Mr. Cuteypants (a female) faithfully lays an egg almost every day. The eggs are about half the size of a chicken's egg, and the shells are much harder than a chicken's egg; they require several good knocks against my granite counter top to shatter the shell. They taste like a chicken's egg.

Mr. Cuteypants has become much calmer since he's (she) begun laying eggs. Perhaps he's preparing for impending motherhood, I don't know. I do not miss his incessant squawking of "Buck wheat!"
