Ive heard so many things like humidity should be kept at 30 until hatching then should be at 60 3 days before hatching. Temperature between 80 and 100. It’s so complicated

Chicken eggs take approximately 21 days to hatch whereas your guineas take 26-28 days. Humidity you want to keep around 50% for chicken eggs but it can fluctuate between 45 and 60. Temperature you want to be around 99.5°F but it’s okay to fluctuate between 98.5 & 100.5.

Guinea eggs are little different. The humidity needs to be around 60% temperature the same as with chickens.

Both type of eggs you stopped turning 3 days before hatch date no. Do not count the first day, day one begins 24 hours after incubation starts.

So to make it easy on yourself start your chcken eggs about 5 to 6 days after you start your guineas.
