    My mom's neighbor brought me 19, yes 19 guinea eggs today. He would not take any $ for them. The bator is warming. I have been waiting 2 months to fill my bator!!! Just think in 28 days or so I'll have sweet little guinea keets!!!! [​IMG]

    What a score !!! good luck on them with the guineas I hatched last year, you need to increase the humidity in the last 3 days near 80% or so so they can get out of their thick shell. That was my experience with them.

    If possible, try to put a chicken egg or two in the incubator, too. Guinea keets aren't quite as smart as baby chicks and a chick can teach them the basic stuff that they need to know. I can't have guineas where I live but I do miss the ma-greep, ma-greep sound that they make when they are happy.
