    my guineas are finally laying, but i want babies, none of my chickens are broody, so i can not stick them under them, will the guinea hen want to sit, is does it get broody like the chickens..

    ps guineas rock, almost cooler than my chickens

    They will. Mine went broody every month last year. [​IMG] Every hen, EVERY month! lol Mine also tried to set on their eggs in the woods so I took them away. If you can get them to set in a coop....that would be perfect. You still might need to take the keets away when they hatch. They're not the best mommas in our part of the world. lol
