    the reason that there is two possible dads is because the other nite one of the females guineas got killed. theres 2 males and 1 female.
    ps. these are all my grandparents guineas..............................................................

    Can't wait to see the keets!

    Are those lavender and royal purple guineas? I wonder what color keets you'll get.

    Good luck! I found a nest last week that had 7 eggs and I was going to wait a few days to get more and put them in the bator and checked it the next day and something had eaten them all. Oh well, I have around 60 in the bator already.

    Quote:Actually, if you had 2 females up until the other night, either one could be the momma. They were both probably laying in the same nest. As long as you left a few eggs in the nest, she should continue to lay eggs there.

    MuranoFarms - oh. ok. thts good to know. thank ya. :) and yes i left 13 in the nest.
