This is not the first time that I have hatched guineas, but I have some questions. Today is only day 25 and you can hear them in the shell pecking or moving. Plus 2 are broken open already. I found this out when i went to turn the eggs last night, since they weren't supposed to go into lock down until today. My questions are: What should the humidity read? I've kept it at 65 now am getting it up to 80. Their shells seem so hard. How long do I wait until I try to help them out? The ones that you just hear moving, could they have not obsorbed the yolk yet? I have a hard time keeping my husband away from them. he wants to help them right away and I know that's not good for them. We had 21 out of 24 hatch succesfully last hatch, but I'm afraid that we are doing it wrong and will end up having issues. My other question is why do you find some that have just pecked a small whole in the shell and other ones you come home from being gone for less than an hour and the shell is completly broken in half and their running around all over the place? Can they die trying to get out? this is the only part about incubating I don't like It's just so nerve racking.
