By my calculation, Gladys has been sitting on her X marks the spot eggs in the goat stall since October 11. 

Despite the fact she appears completely content, because it’s 30 days later, I’m starting to get worried about her. 

From what I’ve learned, the incubation time for guinea eggs is from 26 to 28 days. Does she even know if her eggs are viable? What if her eggs never hatch? Will she sit there forever?

If, by some small miracle her eggs do hatch, it’s too cold for the chicks to survive now. Does she know this?

Is she hungry? Is she thirsty? Is she cold? Does she miss her friends and family?
