You can use ligh bulb of 25 watt as the warmer tool. If the temperature is so low, you can substitute it with 40 watt. Furthermore, the size of the stall depends on chickens’ age and amount. If they are getting bigger, you can move them in a bigger stall.

The prior eggs can be given to other mothers. For next process, the chicks which are just crack opened can be placed in a box with warmer tool.
