I usually put them in the hatcher at day 23 or 24.  I have had too many hatch in the incubator when I have gone to turn them if I leave them longer than that.

Not sure what you are asking, but I think hatching guineas is easier than chickens which are easier than geese which are easier than ducks which are easier than turkeys.  More than you asked for...sorry

Guineas are not as mean as they sound and they might look ferocious but I have many guineas and have never even been pecked before. I have had very good hatching with my incubator. I think I had about 42 eggs in the incubator and got 40. Hope this helps.

Guineas mean! Mine follow us around like cats. In fact they think they are cats, they love eating dry cat food with them. LOL
