The Country Diary of a GenX Woman

So Cute

At 2-3 days old they are still a bit wobbly but very cute. I have lost a couple who couldn’t get out of their shells and one drowned in the water overnight, but I am now confident to help them out of their shells when they start weakening.  I spent hours reading blogs saying intervene/don’t intervene, but having lost some and figuring that a mumma guinea would pick at and move shells to help, I will always intervene now. The birthing kit includes tweezers, cotton buds and a cup of water.
