    I have two broody hens sitting on a lot of eggs and they just started to hatch. Should I somehow separate them from the other 18 hens? Or will the mothers just take care of them?

    Mom should take of them. I would recomend to keep an eye out for a day or two and make sure there's no bullying going on. If so you might want to seperate them from the flock.
