    When should be the last day for turning eggs? I marked day 25 but since incubation is 28 to 30 I don't want to miss my queue! Please advise!!!!! [​IMG]

    Mine usually hatch on day 26. Guineas are one of the easiest to hatch. They hatch fast and usually all within 6 hours of each other.

    Thanks all for your input...although we just had an situation that hopefully won't effect the hatch, we had a power outage for about an hour, my bator cooled down to around 90 degrees before power was restored. I hope this wasn't too low for too long. all the time & effort I've done to get these eggs and now this? [​IMG]

    Dont worry about the power outage, that wont affect the hatch at all!

    I meant to add more but I was trying to work with a 2 yr old.

    I was told to stop turning on day 25. When I went in to do so - they were hatching. They hatched for 2 days and where finished before day 28.

    MandyH You'll shoot your eye out!

    Mine hatch on day 25 or 26 so I usually put them in the hatcher on day 23 or 24. I hatched out about 90 yesterday and they all hatched in like 3 hours.
