Guineafowl eggs take longer to hatch (26+) than chicken eggs (21 days). So it’s possible she may give up, but I have read of some success stories. If you have an incubator I would just hatch them yourself and try to slip in the newborn keets under her.

It really depends where you live. It may be really cold in a month from now so guinea keets may not do well outside if it is really cold.
