    We have a pip in the lavender eggs in our LG. My daughters decided to put eight eggs in the incubator on a whim when our female started laying in the barn. We are on day 30 today and have our first pip. These are our first guinea keets that will be born. We are just glad our hen decided to lay in the barn.

    So far we have had three hatch, no signs from the others, we were not sure how long she had been laying. She is laying more now. Here are a few pics.

    So sweet! [​IMG] I think the eggs can hatch over several days. The way I got my 4 babies was after a few had hatched, the mom abandoned the nest. Some of mine are almost a week younger than the others. Then, she wouldn't accept them, so I adopted them. I'd wait a bit before giving up on the unhatched ones. They might just be lazy! LOL!

    Thanks for the update!
