I just finished building my incubator and have had it running for 2 days. The temp is holding steady, the humidity seems to be good, so I'm picking up 18 guinea eggs in the morning from a fellow who has been collecting them for me. I'm also starting to collect eggs from my own flock of hens that I'll add a week or so after the guinea eggs go in, in hopes that they will hatch at the same time.

I'm so excited to finally start incubating my own eggs, I feel like a kid waiting for Xmas.

I saw a post about chicken and guinea eggs hatching together. It said the guinea eggs needed a higher humidity at lockdown than the chickens do. So it was advised not to hatch them together. Didnt know if you had ever read or heard this.
