on how to go about it. Thanx.
99.5°F at approximately 30-40% humidity day 1 through day 25. Reduce temp by one degree for lockdown and raise humidity to 60-65%.
I lockdown on evening of day 25. Eggs can be locked down as early as day 24 and can hatch from day 26 thru 28.
These numbers are for a forced air incubator. If using a still air incubator, raise temps to 100.5°F - 101°F measured at the top of the eggs.
If you do a search there is lots of information already on the forum. Raising Guinea Fowl 101 has a lot of good information, pay particular attention to posts made by PeepsCa.
