    Well my girl finally has two babies! She was sitting on 4 eggs and 2 hatched last night. I checked the other two but i don't think they will hatch. I also have 12 more coming this Friday and they will be about a week old. I am not sure if I should move my babies from their momma in the coop to put with the new ones in the brooder. She is such a good mommy but it would also be nice to have them all together. Also, she is still sitting on the other two eggs that were scheduled to make an appearance on Sunday 5/22. How long should I wait before calling it off for the last two? The two that hatched were put under her later than the two new chicks.... just wondering how long I should wait.

    Thanks so much!
