    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.

    Yeah, they are orange. My DD BFF said they look like penguins! [​IMG]

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

    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! [​IMG]
