    I have a guineas that are 24 hours, 12 hours and 1 hour old, with one pipped egg, and two not doing anything yet. I am afraid to open the incubator until they are all hatched. How long will they be ok????

    Up to 72 hours they are safe in the bator. Their yolk sac feeds them for up to three days.
