Wondering if anyone has raised a single guinea hen on her own. Yesterday I became aware that my hen was starting to sit on her nest. After months of seeing them together everywhere I saw only the male. later that evening the hen came by for some food then left again. I have had one pair for 6 months now and they have roamed free, except they were always locked up at night. Last night the hen did not come home.
I made a stupid mistake, thinking that the male may want to be with her early in the morning so I left the door open. No need to finish the story but I can tell you I heard one of them screaming late last night. This morning I found loads of feathers next to the woods and the lone female is calling.
Is there any chance she will hatch her young ones on her own? she seems very lonely. Or should I try to find the nest and try to get an incubator?
