Guinea fowl eggs on 4-H EGG Cam

EGG Cam ViewVisit EGG Cam

EGG Cam is part of Embryology - a 4-H School Enrichment Project sponsored by University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension in Lancaster County.

Over the past three years, a variety of ducks and chickens, peacocks, turkey, quail, pheasant and guinea fowl have hatched on EGG Cam.

Once the eggs hatch, the EGG Cam view is switched to the baby birds so you can enjoy their antics before they are sent home with a local farmer.

The current view (photo) is of Guinea fowl eggs. The eggs were rescued from a large community nest where an ambitious hen was doing her best to keep the 50 eggs dry during a heavy rainstorm. The farmer moved the hen to a safe, dry place and then gathered the eggs so we could hatch them. The expected hatch date is June 20 (our closest guess).

In addition to watching birds hatch on-line, you'll also find research-based resources to help you learn more about incubating eggs and raising poultry.
