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?

With Tuesday being the eggception, our guest guineas have surprised us with an egg gift every day this week.

To be sure we’re taking only freshly laid eggs, Don had the great idea of marking the “old” ones with a Sharpie.  

As of last night, we had four fresh guinea eggs in the fridge. Can you tell we’re eggcited?

10/2 Morning Update: Fresh and delicious! We fried up the eggs for breakfast and agreed they were some of the best we’ve ever had. The egg shells were extremely thick – Morning Bray’s resident egg chef (Don) was quite surprised. I heard the first egg bounce off the frying pan as he tried to crack it open!
