    I have guinea eggs in the incubator. Today is day 9 for the first three and I candeled them. Of course I put then in with the pointy side down, but these do have veins, but the strange part is the air pocket isn't on the large end of the egg like the chicken, it's on the small end pointing down. Is that normal?

    No it is not normal. All my guinea eggs have the air cells on the top in the fat end of the egg. Check in another week or so.

    ok I think this post did it three times. anyway, It is dark at the at the large end and air pocket at the pointy end, opposite of what the chicken eggs have. The eggs so far do have veins and I put these eggs in the bater right away.. strange.
