Welcome to BYC!
I have no real advice--I know nothing about chickens.
But....If I were you I would separate the mom and babies from the others.
I could be totally wrong , but that is what I would do.
Sit tight....someone will have the correct answer for you.
Best to initially keep mama and chicks separated, short time,, and then see how they are accepted by the other chickens. Mamas job is to protect her young chicks. Lil chicks will run to mama for cover and safety. How many eggs is she sitting on??? I'm happy your hatch is finally happening..
