    You picked a great incubator. Thought i was the only one who had guineas that didnt go broody. I only suggest a hydrometer from walmart (cheap one will work) and an egg turner. The smithfield one is pretty good on the hydrometer, there with the outdoor themometers.

    Congrats on the Hovabator. They really are great incubators & we love ours [​IMG] And having a hygrometer makes a huge difference. Good luck with your guinea eggs [​IMG] We have some in a bator now & I can't wait until they hatch.
