    My little bantam is sitting on newly hatched guinea fowl and when I picked her up to remove the egg shells she drooled.

    There is fresh water and food in her nest for her and the new babies. It is quite warm up here north of Bundaberg.

    Is it a cooling mechanism? Is it normal, like a dog?

    Cheers Lyng
