There isn't really any reason to remove him while the girls are molting. Removing flock members causes stress, and molting is already hard enough on their bodies, you don't need to add to their stress. They get really grumpy and just don't like having other chickens in their space. It's kind of like chicken PMS, and if the rooster knows what's good for him, he will give them a wide berth.
