Hi there, I have some baby guineas that have hatched out over the past few days.

One of them had pipped two days ago, and not made much progress. I finally helped it out some, and it has hatched now. But it's skin is all orange?? Is that normal? I don't know if it is sticky, or if it's just wet still (still in the hatcher), but its skin on its body is all orange looking.

My daughter was amazed. I said that I loved their little orange feet. She was holding one and said "Their skin is orange too!"

Okay, that's good! I knew their feet were orange, but I had no idea that ALL of their skin was!! Thanks for clearing that up, I thought there was something wrong with it!
