Brinsea & LG - how should I split eggs between? Opinions?

    I got my new Brinsea Eco 20 with turning cradle today. I am just finishing a likely completely unsuccessful first hatch with an LG still air with autoturner.

    I ordered 10+ Brahma eggs, 10+ French Black Copper Marans, and 20+ Guinea eggs - all likely arriving tomorrow. The guineas take 28 days to hatch. Do I split them so that I have half of each in both bators? Or do I put the Guineas all in the LG? I'd love to compare success side by side, but the guineas will take longer so common sense says to incubate them separately. For what it's worth, I won't be keeping any but 2 or 3 of the brahma and maran pullets. The rest will be moving on.

    put the brahmas and the marans in the brinsea and monitor it closely. put the guineas in the LG, drive it far into the woods and throw it out the car door [​IMG]
    then keep all the marans.
