One of my guinea hens has been missing for quite awhile, I haven’t really kept track because I figured she must have been picked off. She is BRIGHT white and I figured she would be a predator magnet... so naturally, I didn’t think that she had gone off to nest until this morning she randomly came to the hen house for a quick bite before running off so I went on a hunt to find her. When I did find her, she had nested in a place where she could easily be picked off by anyone and it’s far away from the house and out of my Great Pyrenees zone that I knew I needed to take the eggs. There’s also a big storm coming tonight and she wouldn’t have been able to get out of the elements. I guess I am saying that so you know that I felt that it was best for everyone involved to take the eggs. Even if I don’t hatch any babies, at least I know that my hen is safe. I was lucky enough to have had my incubator running and so it was easy to get that ready for them. It’s currently at 99.0 heat and 43% humidity. I am trying to get it down to 40% but the humidity has been insane so even with a dehumidifier, I was still getting pretty high humidity readings. I have had to slightly crack open the incubator and the humidity has stabilised at 43%. I am hoping that’s good enough. This is my first time incubating guinea eggs so any advice is appreciated. On to my question... since I have no idea to when she started sitting, I don’t really have an idea of how old the eggs would be. I am curious to know what you think. I gently candled them when I brought them inside and these are what they look like. When should I expect to start lockdown?
