Brooding Hen 13 eggs,

Discussion in 'Guinea Fowl' started by Butte Gramps, Mar 7, 2016.

  1. Hello all, newbe. My Brooding Hen is on 13 eggs free ranging (safe location). Do Guinea Hens protect there keets, or should I capture them and move to coop? Were having heavy rains (finally in foot hills N. Calif) this week, when I think the keets will be hatched. Not sure what to do? Cheers to all

    I have read that guineas aren't good mothers, but i have never owned guineas or their keets so i could be wrong. i would capture them and move them to the coop though. [​IMG]
     
  3. Hello and Thank You, I am leaning towards capturing them as well, as I also have read that Guinea Hens do not make good Mothers as well. Cheers
