A friend has given me 18 Guinea Fowl egg to try & hatch. Do you do the same as
you do with chickens or is there something different. I never incubated them before
so I have no idea. I set them on the 12/27/15. Can anyone give me any pointers
on how to go about it. Thanx.

99.5°F at approximately 30-40% humidity day 1 through day 25. Reduce temp by one degree for lockdown and raise humidity to 60-65%.

I lockdown on evening of day 25. Eggs can be locked down as early as day 24 and can hatch from day 26 thru 28.

These numbers are for a forced air incubator. If using a still air incubator, raise temps to 100.5°F - 101°F measured at the top of the eggs.

If you do a search there is lots of information already on the forum. Raising Guinea Fowl 101 has a lot of good information, pay particular attention to posts made by PeepsCa.
