    I've been reading online that it takes 26-28 days for Guineas to hatch. Is it possible for some too take longer? If so how many extra days could it take?

    It can take up to 30-32 days for some eggs in the batch to hatch, but usually the late hatchers have genetic issues/birth defects or they are so weak by then they die trying to hatch. 26 days is the norm for me, and I usually have several that are early hatchers, but maybe only just 1 or 2 that go much past day 28.
