    Hi there.
    I’ve got 18 fertile guinea eggs in the incubator due to hatch in two weeks. This will be my first time raising guineas. Any suggestions, tips, or anything I should know about? They will be hatching along with quail and I plan on having them together, unless that is a bad idea.
    Thanks.

    Idk about quail but I will warn you I just had to rehome 3 Guinea that lived with my chickens becuase they where harassing my flock to much and the male and my rooster got in a really bad fight. I would think quail are too small to be homed with guinea. Please at the very least be prepared with a plan to seperate incase things do go bad

    They will only be in the brooder with the quail. I plan on having them in their own enclosure after that.
