    I have 5 guineas sitting on approximately 100 eggs in a 50 gallon barrell. So far I found 1 baby chick dead with blood all over its head. What can I do? Should I go in and move the eggs to my incubator? Or just hope some survive the five males walking around on the eggs and babies?

    Yup, I vote to move the eggs to the bator as well. I have one guinea girlie sitting on 30 right now...we are going camping this weekend but as soon as we get back I am raiding the nest and they are going in the bator. GOOD LUCK!!
