I am so excited! A few weeks ago I found my female guinea sitting on a bunch of eggs but she left the nest and didn't go back. I gathered the eggs and placed them under my little black australorp who was brooding without any eggs under her. I figured I had nothing to lose. Today, she hatched 15 out of 16 eggs so far. I am so excited as my female guinea disappeared about a week ago. She came back the first morning but never returned. Either she is sitting on eggs or something got her! I felt so bad for my male who keeps calling her. Now today we have lots of guineas! To be on the safe side I took 13 and put them in my RubberMaid container under a heat lamp. I left the little hen a few but want to be sure I end up with guineas. Now everyone is happy all around. I will post pictures as soon as Photo bucket downloads them. I have dial up service so it takes a very long time.
