Hello,
I had a single keet that hatched 4 weeks ago. Now, I have a broody guinea hen and some eggs are starting to hatch. Should I take some of the newly hatched keets and add them to the single older one? Or try to introduce the 4-week old to the Mom and her brood?
Thank you.

If you try to add the older keet to the hen and her new hatches, she will probably try to kill it.
