Good question (General Discussion)

My experience with one lone guinea was pretty sad. He wasn't "alone" because we had a few chickens at the time, but it was obvious that he was craving the companionship of the guinea flock he had been a part of for the previous 10+ years. He was definitely stressed. I don't know of any way to prevent that other than possibly rehoming the guinea to somebody who has a guinea flock. I suppose if he had been a female it might have been a little different. I think males are more stressed to be without other guineas than females are.

All of my four females laid eggs for at least 6 years (6, 8, 9, and 10 to be precise), so I wouldn't be surprised if your girls laid at least a few eggs this season. You will see them reduce the number of eggs they lay as they get older, but 5 seems a little early for them to stop completely. It's possible that could be the case, but I'm thinking maybe not this year.
