Sorry for posting in the chicken section. The guinea section doesn’t seem to have a lot of traffic.
I have 4 guineas that survived the predators from last year. They are in a coop to keep them safe and they started laying eggs. They are laying about one a day and I have 7 today. However, I don’t see them sitting on them. I looked online and I found a source that says they don’t get “broody” until they have about 30 eggs. Does this mean they won’t incubate until the nest is full of eggs?
Yeah I think a lot of people use an incubator or chickens for that. I know a couple people with guineas and the other issue is it is either hard or they don't know how to recognize if there is a male to fertilize the eggs. Around here the snakes get a lot of the eggs 'cause they just pile up.
