OOoo that is SO adorable! We've had our second nest of baby guineas hatch this week. They are to cute for words as well. They laid a 3rd nest in the farmer's field next door. When a momma started to sit the nest Mike shooed her off, collected the eggs and put them in the incubator. It would have been better to allow her to do the work, but we have no idea when the farmer will come and lay out his chemicals, and do all his "stuff". So, we figured it would be better to intervene in this instance. Maybe we'll get a 4th nest? So far we have about 20 babies.
