    They really are cute and look nice and healthy! Do you know what color the one in front is? I don't think I've seen one like that before.

    I'd love to see what they turn out like. It's a beautiful color.

    Hey flyfishingguy,your guineas look great.I just had a batch of guineas hatch myself and am a little dissapointed because I had one guinea pip ,completely developed ,:(looked perfectly well (I opened the egg myself),but was not able to break the shell and died inside the shell.Another two hatched with twisted toes ,and cannot walk on their own,I cannot figure out what happenned ,4 of the seven came out perfectly well and on time,has this ever happened to you?
