Broody, 'bator or let mama do it? My Guineas should produce eggs next year. Should I let a broody Silkie hatch the guinea eggs? Or since I have the incubator, I'm wondering if I should just do it myself? My Guineas don't free range yet but I will let them when the weather breaks. I've read that they're not very good hatching on their own, they don't nest in the safest areas and often get attacked by predators while on the nest. I guess I could always keep them penned till they start laying in the coop. Very confused! lol Any advice?
