You do realise that any chicks which hatch from the next batch will be three weeks younger than the two you've just hatched? This age difference will be too great for you to keep them all together, as by then the older ones will have grown a lot and will bully the babies if they're introduced all together. So you'll need to keep separate brooders and pens for each hatch as they grow up.
