    Hey Guys!

    I have a little bantam hen with her rooster and she laid 7 eggs, they are in a good size pen. She hatched two yesterday, and I have no idea what to do. I have some questions and I need some advise from you experts!!!
    Help!

    As of last night she was still laying on the other eggs, and the two baby chicks were nuzzled under her.
    Should I take the rooster out? (Because he seems to be doing well in there with them!)
    Should I take the babies out and put them in a brooder?
    How long will it take for the other eggs to hatch?
    Should i put a light in the cage?

    The roo should be fine in there, they are usually good daddies.

    Momma can keep the babies warm, just check to be sure shees being attentive and snuggling them.
