    [​IMG] My guinea eggs are here! Ok, now I know not to wash them but how do you clean the mud and poo off of them?
    Should I just gently rub them with a paper towel or rag?
    And I am not finding anything specific about humidity level. What should I start with? It's about 43% right now. My eggs need to sit about 8 hours before I put them in the bator.
    All 36 eggs look fine. Here we go![​IMG]

    jusy wipe poo off with a cloth i always let my eggs set 24 hours ,they have air bubbles when shipped,so i wait a little longer to give the eggs time to do what they do

    Yeah, I just wipe them with a cloth to get the majority of the stuff off. Hopefully they aren't TOO muddy.

    Welcome to the waiting game! It's so exciting when you put the eggs in the bator.

    I would love to hatch some more. I love hatching eggs! I was wondering if I hatched some to sell at the fair.

    Happy hatching,
