    My kids wanted to try to hatch a couple eggs when one of our hens went broody, well we did and today we found 2 chicks in the coop.

    Cute little buggers
    She is taking great care of them

    My question is, should I take them out or let her raise them?

    I cannot imagine doing better for them than the hen can do. It's her job.
