I have 3 hens and one rooster. They are in a fairly good sized pen together. Two of the gals got broody and are hatching out a mess of chicks - both theirs and others. This group does NOT like to be separated! Once the chicks hatch - should I remove the rooster?

I let my mamas raise their chicks in with the lfock. I've actually seen roos help the mama with the chicks. If they do that well together, hopefully they will also do well with new chicks in the mix.
