    I am incubating guinea eggs but the shells are very hard. I dropped one on concrete and it didn't even break. Is this normal? I'm so afraid the babies won't be able to get out of the hard shell when it's time

    Fear not. Guinea eggs are very very strong. My male guinea often rolls eggs out of a nest box that is raised four feet and they never break. Its a hassle trying to crack them open for breakfast.The keets will easily hatch.
