    Me and my son worked to put up an electric net to protect our guinea from an opossum that was seen last night. Just got in the house and I heard her squawking. We went out and checked and Justin yelled "A SNAKE!",there was a big black snake curled around the nest snacking on her eggs! I grabbed it by the neck and threw it. Out of the 13 she started with, there lay two lonely eggs. One was pipping, so i'm putting them in the incubator. I'm holding them against my belly while waiting for bator to get warm, but not sure what temp to warm it to. Help please! I can feel it moving and scratching! So cool![​IMG]
