    Well... my first two eggs were supposed to hatch today if I had the temp correct... one is completely dark except for the air cell, so I think it is doing ok... the other wasn't dark like the first, and seemed rather small inside... I cracked it open and lo, the chick was dead =/ looks like it was at 14-15 days development. Makes me sad, but this next time I am going to set up my bator better. This was a learning experience, hopefully this one egg hatches and then I have a few more hatch to give him/her company. *sighs*

    Are there any physical differences between male/female guineas? I have been trying to decipher from their call, but they all sqwak at the aime time and it hard to distiguish. And are those things on their head their version of a waddle....man these things are some o the strangest creatures...

    Still on the hunt. We can't seem to find anything, and on top of it by the time I get home all I want to do is crash. We have been busy at work, we have 80-90 dogs at the kennel and I have two newbies, and a part time kennel tech working with me at the moment, so I am doing a lot of running around being bossy(which I do not like to do), having to work double because one of the new people can't even clean up dog poop for some reason, racking my brain trying to figure out where to put dogs because our boss doesn't have enough tarps to cover around the sides of pens due to aggressive dogs(she should just buy some new kennels and we wouldn't have this problem =_=), and getting my arm and shoulder yaked to hell tryign to get these dog aggressive dogs down the dang isle to get them in and out. *sighs* We keep looking for places to move, but nothing so far is within budget... i am probably going to have to get rid of my roo's, if not my hens as well. It might be apartment life for me... which sucks royally. I am a little bummed about the egg in the incubator, still don't know if I am doing anything right. The young pullets and cockerel, are sleeping in the big coop with the flock tonight, we shall see how they do... I put them up on the roosts tonight, their first time roosting. The dogs also got stuck in the rain after I sent them to the groomers... so a waste of time and money there... overall, a really bad month. I hope I get some good news soon. So what nonsense has been going on with you? =]

    I'm right with you. I had to go out of town a while back and had someone house sitting. when I came back the temp was at 104! I was hoping it hadnt been that way long but I think it killed them. I opened one today that had no movement and I think it went at the same time as yours. :(
