I know this is for chickens but perhaps some of you might have experience with guineas as well. My guinea hen went broody a little more than a month ago and the eggs have not hatched. I also wonder when a hen goes broody, doesn't it take some time for her to lay a bunch of eggs so perhaps it wouldn't matter if she's been sitting for longer than a month? I am not equipped to incubate eggs and wanted to do it naturally. She has sat on those eggs continuously and protects them with a vengeance. Thankfully she is in the coop where she is safe. I read that guinea eggs are supposed to hatch around 26-28 days. I'm not sure what to do. I'm afraid to take an egg and candle it for fear she might get upset and leave the nest, if the eggs are viable, but I'm also not sure how healthy it is for her to always be sitting on the eggs.
