    So its been 15 hours since the egg pipped and so i tried to be gentle with manual hatch i kept watering it slowly with warm water checking condtantly for veins.. So there was just a little bit of shell remaining and the chicken got it head of it... So i thought why dont i get it out of the egg since it had its head out.. Suddenly i saw my hands full with blood.. Now ive experienced and hatched many guinea eggs but this is too new and im not sure what do i do? Was i doing good?

    It wasn't ready. Putting cornstarch or flour on the umbilical will stop bleeding. Place the baby into a paper towel lined container in the incubator till it finds it feet.
