    My rooster is really into one of our guinea hens. Like, they are always together. He sits on her. She picks things off his waddle. ...They even have some romance. I read online that they can actual crossbreed. So I wanted to hatch some of her eggs...anyone have an idea of the gestation period?

    The guinea-naked necks are kind of scary looking!
