We are going to pickup some hatching eggs (guineas) this evening.  I have a couple old hens that are broody, figure I can slip them under one or two.


Chickens work well as surrogates.  I swap all the chicken eggs out for guinea eggs and have had good luck.  Haven't tried mixed batches, the guineas take longer so she might abandon them once the chicks hatch.

Very cool Robo, Barred Rocks make good mothers.  Our old hen is a Buff, a bit cranky but good mother...LOL.  I'm hoping to have keets by the end of the month.
