    Two of my girls have taken to sitting on their eggs. This is my first time letting them hatch their own eggs. What can I expect? Will they get off the next to eat and drink?

    One of the girls has taken to making strange crying noises. Is this normal?

    I've never had guineas, but most mother birds will move to get food. I prefer not to bring my ducks food because then ants come.
    BTW: My neighbors guineas hatched out 25 babies!

    That's a lot of guineas! And a lot of "buckwheats".
