I purchased 8 guinnea eggs 3 weeks ago and put 4 each under my two broody hens. We came home today and had 5 baby chicks hatched out. The moma usually only stays on the nest about 2 days after all the chicks have hatched out so if there are ANY actual guinnea eggs that are supposed to hatch next weekend they will die. I am wondering if I can move all the chicks to one of the hens and put the unhatched eggs under the other. Not sure how the hens will react to this since they each have babies. One has 3 and one has 2 hatched. My husband told me when I got the eggs that they didn't look like guinnea eggs but the lady said they were. He thinks one might actually be a guinnea egg. What to do??? We do not have an incubator.
