Oh boy - I just learned waaaay too much about incubating them. I had a horrid hatch due to tempurature influxes in my incubator.

What do you want to know?

There are some fantastic books out there. Just google it. There is a really good one about gardening with guineas by a lady in Texas that I've bought keets from.

Hi,
Guinea eggs take 28 days to hatch. Just the same temps and humidity as for chicken eggs. Take them off the turner on day 24 and fill both water holders. Usually the eggs from the first two weeks of laying are not fertile. HTH. Do you still have guinea eggs at this time of the year? Where are you?
