My d'uccle hen went broody on a dozen guinea eggs two and a half weeks ago. I think there may also be one of hers in there--I thought so at first but today when I checked I wasn't so sure. All of the eggs show veins, movement, even heartbeats except for one egg which showed a hairline crack. There is a baby in there but I don't know if it's alive or not but I'm leaving it. Anyways, now for the questions: 1.) If there is indeed a chicken egg in there and it hatches at the end of this week and the hen abandons the guinea eggs I do plan to incubate. I've never incubated before and will be borrowing a Little Giant styrofoam bater. How do I add enough humidity to it for the guinea eggs? 2.) If they keets successfully hatch can I put them in with the d'uccle and her chick? They share a large coop and adjoining pen with a silkie roo and his other 2 girls and 3 adult guineas. 3.) If I do have to incubate them (if there is no chick egg I'm hoping the d'uccle will finish the job) what can I do to make sure everything goes okay? How long does it take them to hatch after they start to pip? How long do I leave them in the bater after they hatch and how long after I take them out do they start to eat and drink? Should I put food and water out right away? 4.) If I don't end up incubating them and the hen hatches them will she just naturally care for and protect them, even in the coop/pen with the others? Will they be safe? She is very protective of the nest right now; won't this carry on towards the babies? If she does hatch the keets and mothers them what will happen when they get older and realize they're guineas and not chickens--or will they? I'm sure I'll have more questions but for now these are all I can think of. Thanks!
