I am hatching guinea eggs and did the float test 24 hrs after the last keet hatched. I performed the water test and I had five eggs that sunk so I decided to crack them. One egg had a keet inside and I was devastated. The others were bad. As for the keet maybe the air sac was too small causing it to sink or died in the egg. I wish I would have waited 2 or 3 more days

First thing is, do not do the water test. Get a good light and learn how to candle and there is no point in doing the water test. Second part is that the keet was already dead and was not going to hatch anyway.
