    I'm hatching 4 guinea eggs in a pouch . i sewed a shirt that has 4 socks stitched to the stomach area inside. I'm also doing 4 as a control in an incubator. I've never hatched guineas ,but have hatched other types of birds. Any pointers?

    Well one good thing about guinea eggs they are hard to crack, but i hope you move around real slow for the next month so you don't have any ruptured air sacks like eggs get when shipped.

    Good luck Broody,
    guess if they hatch will have to call you Guinea hen [​IMG]
