Hello BYPers

Can someone suggest what I should be setting the incubator for with Guinea Fowl eggs?

I havent had much success with them to date, yet the chicks and ducks are doing much better than I ever expected.
After posting here about the problems with another BYPer, it was discovered that putting the fowl eggs in with duck and chicken wasnt the best idea and could be my problem.

So I have now separated the eggs into a small incubator (RCOM20) and set the humidity to 50% and the temp to 37.7%.
8 are due this week, so I may have missed the boat with these guys - but the other 11 were placed in yesterday.

Would this be the best? (The RCOM doesnt have a setting for fowl eggs which I could use as a guide)

Any suggestions would be great.
