NO. Unless it has been more than 30-48 hours since pip, AND no zipping has occurred, AND the chick seems weak or the peeping/rocking had slowed/quieted, you should not in any way attempt to help the chick. Peeping and rocking is normal and the chick will appear very active when hatching. Loud peeping is a GOOD sign.

They will rest for a long time after hatching.
