    My first guinea keet hatched out . I am so excited. This is my first successful hatch. I have an incubator with about 18 more eggs waiting to pip, I noticed one is working on it. I hope it hurries so it can kep the other company, I feel so bad because it is all by itself. I also have a big guinea sitting on a next of 25 eggs, I think I have about another week and half on those. This is so exciting for me because I had to throw out about 40 eggs a couple of weeks nothing pipped out of that batched. I think I did something wrong with the incubator. Thanks to everyone and all the posting that have been going on this has so helped me with trying to raise guineas. I love my guineas, I never had any until last year when I got a few for my tick problem, they are wonderful. I can come home from a bad day at work and sit down and watch my little mob ( 8 guineas) and my mood changes, they are my feathered therapists.
