    has anyone tried using quail eggs racks for guinea eggs. even if you have to space them out, you should be able to hatch twice as many keets if not more. anyone tried this.

    I don't know how big guineas are, but in the quail egg racks, the size of one of the holes is about the size of a quarter. I don't know if they would be able to hold them upright.

    I've never seen a quail egg except in pictures, but the guinea eggs I had were just a hair smaller than chicken eggs. My guess is they'd be too big.
