    I have guinea eggs hatching right now and one is trying to get out of the egg and I can hear it chirping. After it gets out of the egg, should I take the keet right out and put it into the brooder? Should I help the little guy get out of the egg or wait and let it get out on its own?

    Give him time to get out on its own and leave it in there until your hatch it done. If you open the bator to take him out you will let precious humidity out and the rest will have a harder time. Jenn
