    When should I let Mama hen take her babies out of the pen.

    She will chase other hens who is in lower pecking order, and only one above her, and she always by herself and never bother others. Mama used to beat up rooster however, once she accepted him, she never challenged him again, so she seems not very responsible to the pecking of rooster.
