    Ok, so we all know how smart guineas are! NOT! So we had a guinea who decided to lay about 30 eggs outside our property line (so that our LGD couldn't protect her) she was sitting there for about two weeks. To make a long story short, she got killed by who knows what and we found the cold eggs today and got an incubater. Every egg is fertilized but we didn't check on her yesterday so we don't know if she got killed Tues night or Wed night (today is Thursday). Do you think these eggs have a chance? We are going to try to hatch them regardless but hoping for someone who has had success in this type of situation. Thank you in advance!

    P.S. Please don't hate, our chickens are tame but the guineas are wild.

    [​IMG] A lot will depend upon how cold it got and how long they were chilled. I agree with giving it a try. They may very well still be viable. Good luck with hatching them.
