Default Newly deliveded goats

My husband & I are newbies to raising goats, but so far have done well. Last week, our senior Nigerian Dwarf doe kidded triplets. We have a quarantine shelter, which she is in. We have 2 questions.
1. How old do the kids need to be before we introduce them back to the herd (4 other goats)?
2. We have 2 other does that are pregnant; one of them looks like any day. We only have one area for a delivering (first goat & triplets are in there now). Can we put 2nd pregnant goat in with mom & triplets? Or should we put mom & triplets back with the herd or somewhere else?
Thank you so much.

Give Mom and Babies a day or two, then put them in with the herd. My girls were ready after just 2 days, as long as the kids are getting around OK.
