    Im a beginner on guineas. Ive hatched 100's of quail, some chickens, pheasants, chukars, and some new Gambels Quail I bought of ebay. Well I started noticing some bugs around the yard from all the feed and decided to try some guineas to help with the bug control. Well I won another ebay auction and ended up with 36 eggs. Im going to put them in the bator tomarrow and hopefully I'll have a good hatch. Somewhere I read 50% hatch on shipped eggs is good. So lets hope for at least that. The last batch of shipped eggs (Gambel's) I had 23 out of 27 hatch so I think that is great. Wish me luck. I guess I got the basics down. incubate 25 days then into the hatcher? Im gonna keep the humidity and temp the same as what Ive been using for everything else.

    Good luck to you! I don't have an incubator but I think what you've said above is what I've heard people say. Someone else will be along, I'm sure....
