Guinea Fowl Hatching Eggs
Our Guinea Fowl Hatching Eggs Guarantee
We assure that you will receive fertile, fresh guinea fowl hatching eggs, intact and in good condition. These eggs are carefully packaged for shipping to avoid breakage and cracking. If, however, you receive eggs that are not intact, contact us immediately. We insure our egg shipments and want to be sure that you get exactly what you’ve ordered, in the best condition.
Because circumstances during and after shipment are out of our control, we cannot guarantee hatchability. Under ideal conditions, hatch rates are 85-90%, but these eggs may endure temperatures that are not conducive to hatching, and they may be bounced around or dropped during shipping. Due to these variables, you can expect a hatch rate that’s slightly less than standard. Again, we are unable to guarantee hatchability.

Some sage advice form the past:
Lewis Wright in The Practical Poultry Keeper said in 1867: “To commence breeding Guinea-fowls, it is needful to procure some eggs and set them under a common hen.”
They knew back then the best way to hatch guinea fowl eggs and the advice hasn’t changed in 140 years.
Hatching fertile Guinea fowl eggs with a broody chicken:
Letting nature take its course and allowing a hen to incubate and hatch fertile Guinea eggs is the best method.
If allowed to roam, the Guinea hen will likely make her own nest on the ground and somewhere where you can not see it leaving her vulnerable to predation. You also can not move a guinea nest, they will just abandon it. This is why the chicken or turkey is a much better choice.
Silkies are a good choice to sit on your fertile Guinea fowl eggs as they make excellent and patient mothers.
Dust the mother and the nest with Diatomaceous Earth to keep parasites down.
