Hi all, I haven't been on here in a while -- tad busy with life! But I had a guinea hen who laid her nest in our large chicken coop (all our guineas and chickens roost at night in the coop) Well I was worried about her and our cold weather that has arrived -- some days at least! -- and what she might do with the keets after they hatched such as take them out into the wet grass. So............ we decided to move her and her nest into a large wire cage (abt 6 ft X 3 ft) inside the coop. She was back in a corner so it was hard to sneak up on her and grab her-- she got away from hubby but he finally caught her after feathers were flying and she was flying every where in the coop! He held her while I moved her eggs and tried to make a scooped out nest like she had on the floor of the coop. We then placed the cage over the nest and he put her in there. We left her alone and went to the house but I checked her in an hour and she was still not on her nest and I was heartsick! But by morning she was on the nest like it had never been moved. She has been on it for the last 3 days and now this afternoon I saw a broken egg shell so thought some eggs must have hatched. She was hissing big time at me and then ran at me (while she was in the cage) and I finally got to see under her-- I counted 10 babies and not sure how many eggs there were. Can't wait to see how many there are tomorrow. I want to leave them in there for a few days before I let lift one end of the cage so she can get out if she wants to. I have done this with the chicken hens and it works out fine. Just wanted to share with you my trial at moving a guinea hen!
