I thought we had lost our guinea hen about 5 days ago. We found her today sitting on a nest under the tomatoes plants. Should we build an enclosure around her and leave her be or is it safe in try to incubate them now. Not sure haw many days she has been sitting. I would say 4-7 days and I know 3 days makes a world of difference.

I would go ahead and incubate. Guineas are frailer and more susceptible to the cold than our baby chicks and sometimes the Moms just take off leaving the little babies in the nest and come check on them later and it's too cool for that! If those babies hatch outdoors now , it could be rough on them...... Best of luck. Nancy
