    I couldn't resist and broke down and bought pearl guinea eggs. I just hatched my first call ducks 2 weeks ago so hoping for some guineas now. I got 20 guinea eggs and 4 cochin eggs this morning, let them set all day and just put them in the bator. Going to keep temps at 99.5-100.5 and humidity at 40% til lockdown then up to 55%. I have read they hatch at 28 days but other people have said theirs started hatching on 26 so when should I stop turn, still 3 days before the 28th day? [​IMG] [​IMG]
