    Willow sent me 12 guinea eggs along with 10 duck eggs. I have never hatched guineas before and I was wondering if the temp. and humidity are the same as chickens eggs? I know that guinea's take 28 days to hatch but is everything else pretty much the same as hatching chicken eggs?

    Everything else is the same but my guineas always started hatching on day 25/26 and were usually done by day 28.
