    So cool. [​IMG] I hope you have a great hatch. I am learning about my guineas that hatched about 5 weeks ago. They are different in a lot of ways from chicks--move much faster and are more skiddish of people. But I think they are very interesting. I'm planning to let them free range when they get a bit bigger.

    I dont normally deal with Guineas but someone brought these to me to hatch for them.

    They must have been sat on for a while cause my math says they should hatch Saturday.

    They did say they were from a found nest.

    I sell some. I usually wait till there at least 7 weeks to decide which. The ones I do sell go for $300.

    The guinea eggs that I hatched in my incubator also hatched early--according to the info that I had read. They hatched about 3 days early. They were also from a found nest. The second batch of eggs were shipped to me through the mail and they also hatched 2-3 days early.

    Interesting... I have noticed that most of the time they don't pip an zip the eggs like chicks do. The sorta just bust the side out of the eggs.
