Questions about incubating Guinea Fowl Eggs! - Page 9

post #81 of 85

I had a dozen guinea eggs, stuck them under an Old English Game cross banty hen and all the eggs but one rotted. So this little cock hatched out and he's still around. But I've heard that it's really hard to raise guineas from hatching eggs, the hatchibilitly rate is not good and it certainly wasn't in my case. 

Happy New Year!

Sorry about your poor hatch.

 

I had a broody hen I couldn't break of being broody.  I relented and gave her 10 guinea eggs.  Twenty-six days later she hatched all 10 eggs.

Welsummers, mixed breed chickens, Blue Slate turkeys and a few guineas.

In wonderful Wyoming.

Tomorrow is day 24. I'm thinking about candling then locking down. I will remove turner and up humidity. I have read to line the bottom with Saran Wrap and then put down shelf liner. So then I just set the eggs in there without regard to up or down or slant? Does the slant matter at this point, when placing the eggs in for lockdown?

My eggs are 29 days in the incubator and still nothing. I candled them at 23 days they were still alive and moving. What should I do? I have a still air incubator.
