I have a total of six adult guineas. I know I have 2 males and at least 3 females. I had 2 females that were laying eggs inside their house (a 10x10 concrete floored house with wood shavings and straw covering the floor). These 2 females had laid over 40 eggs and they were taking turns but as the nest grew bigger, both of them would sit side by side. A neighbor's dog (I guess) got in and raided the nest, destroying about half the eggs. One of the females gave up and quit sitting but the other was very determined and kept on. We have a "dutch" door on our house (top half opens independently from the bottom) so we are only opening the top part during the day. Now we have this determined momma who I noticed today has at least 2 babies that have hatched. They look so sweet! All nice and fluffy. They have been out a little but are mostly spending time under momma. I need advice on what to do. She seems very protective and the daddy is staying inside with her to protect her. There is another female that seems to be acting as "midwife" although this female is also laying her own eggs on a nest outside. I have a way to divide the house and make a nursery area. Should I do that? I'm afraid I will scare momma. Should I let her finish hatching then divide the house? I was hoping to get the mommas to lay in the house. At least I have one that is and I don't want to discourage her or frighten her. I incubated over 60 eggs last year...ended up with 24 babies and lost all but 4! So I'm not sure that I will incubate eggs this year.
