    I just candled and 4 were infertile. 17 were full of babies [​IMG]

    I am excited! I hope my results are better than last year. Last year was bad bad bad.

    Well Congratz, and keep us posted! [​IMG] How long does it take for guinea eggs to hatch? Same as chickens?

    Post hijacking [​IMG]....Is the humidity any different for guineas than chickens? I picked up 12 guinea eggs today, and really have no idea what to do with them....Do you still up the humidity 3 days before the hatch date?

    Quote:Yes, everything is the same as when incubating chicken eggs except the extra 7 days! Or at least that works for me!
