    I had never incubated anything. Today is day 27 for my guinea eggs and so far I have a total of 19 healthy hatchlings. There are 9 eggs left.

    How long after 28 days do you leave the un-hatched ones in the incubator? Is there a cut off, as in, if they haven't hatched by day ___ do you dispose of the unhatched ones?

    It's very exciting isn't it? I'm mentally exhausted. [​IMG]

    Me personally, if I didnt need the incubator, I would leave them for 3-4 days, and candle before you toss.
