    What temp? How long until hatch? Humidity? I have hatch chickens and ducks but not guineas. Thank you!

    I hatch them in the same 'bator with my chicken eggs. The temperature & humidity are similar however they take 28 days to hatch.

    They should also be rolled more often than chicken eggs. I do mine at least 5 times a day.

    I do mine same as others, they are supposed to hatch at 28 days, however sometimes they hatch early by a couple of days, have had them hatch at 26.

    Edited to add: put chicken eggs in with them on day 8, and they SHOULD all hatch at the same time.
