My mom ordered guinea eggs through the mail. We ordered 12, but actually recieved 19 due to extras On the evening of the eighth day of incubation, I slipped an egg from my prized Old English Game Hen under one of the broodies I was using thinking it would hatch the same time as the keets. I had actually figured that most of the guinea eggs wouldn't hatch because they got soiled a few times and left to chill for undetermined amouts of time (This happened before I slipped the banty egg in). So, four whole days before the hatch date, eggs began pipping left and right. Those hens hatched every egg except for two clears that I had tossed days ago and one that was dead in the shell. Total miracle all on it's own. Due to this early miracle hatch, my chicken egg was left all alone under the broody who was to leave the nest as soon as her new keets were strong enough. She sit on it for a few more days and I knew that I needed to get a plan before something happened. I had a Plymoth Rock hen who was broody, but she's a notorious egg crusher. I'm always cleaning yolk and shell out of her feathers. I figured that my hen would stay on the egg until morning, thus giving me time to make a plan. I got up at 8:00 am this morning and went straight to the barn to check her. I looked in the cage to find "Clucky" and her brood scooted about 3 in away from my little egg. I picked it up to find that it was very much a cold little egg. I don't know how long it takes for a 98 to 100 degree egg to cool like that, but she probably left it at day break. This leaves a possible 2 hr cooling time. I have it under the "Eggs-terminator" (My Plymoth Rock Hen) right now. I checked it after it had gotten back up to normal temperature, and I swear I heard and felt 4 little pecks from the egg. I candled it as well, but I didn' see any movement (Can you even see chick movement at 20 days?). Do you think it will survive the chill and hatch anyway? It's supposed to hatch tommorrow!
