    Well it's been 5-6 days since 2 of the chicks hatched. They seem to be doing well...they are on chick starter and we made a spot for then and mama o. The floor of the coop (I had posted about beds being so high).

    There are still lots of eggs that haven't hatched...how long do I wait to remove them?

    Also...mama has diarrhea..all water. I read on another forum here different causes but none about new mamas. Does that make a difference? It's been warm here..about 75-85 on most days with nights between 48-60. Is she too hot? Is there just normal for new mama's? Should I be worried?

    it could be just because she hasn't eaten that much. if the eggs are past 25 days then i'd remove them
