    My wonderful little banty hens have gone broody and after hatching some quail eggs for a friend he's given me some guinea eggs to put under them.

    Has anyone had experience with doing this?
     
  2. Sure, got some on the ground now. Chickens are much better mothers than guineas. Let'er rip..........Pop

    Sure can! Grandma would always put the guinea eggs under broody hens because they made better mothers.
