    I am incubating chicken and guinea fowl eggs in the same incubator at the same time. I didn't think ahead and made the mistake of starting them at the same time, lesson learned. I have some experience with chicken eggs, but none with guinea. My question is about lock-down. Can I lock down the guineas and take them off the auto turner at the same time as the chickens (day18) or do I need to come up with a plan to move the chickens to a separate incubator for their lock-down? I could try to find another bator but I'd rather not if the guinea eggs would be okay in there as the chicken hatch. Thanks for your help! -Joe
