    My Dad and I need some advice. Can a refrigerated guinea egg be hatched in an incubator ? If so, what should the temperature be set on ? Thanks for any Help!

    While not the recommended method of storing hatching eggs, there have been many that have hatched refrigerated chicken eggs and at least one who has hatched refrigerated turkey eggs.

    Read Hatching 101 by @Sally Sunshine to learn how to incubate eggs.

    Incubation temperature is the same as for chicken or turkey eggs depending on whether you are using a still air or forced air incubator. Guinea eggs normally hatch on days 26 through 28.
