    I have 2 guinea eggs in lockdown. They have been in lockdown today (Monday) this is the 2nd day. One has had an external pip last night at 11:30p, so far it has not hatched or pipped further. It has been 10 hours and it seems to be trying with no success. Should I assist a little bit with the egg. I have done this before so I am aware of how to do it. This is only the 25th day. Upon candling I saw them into the air sack when I locked them done (oh no). It is trying to hatch early, today is the 25th day. Help what should I do? Assist or not?
