Mine did that sometimes to establish dominance, it's a bit hard to tell if you've got a lad on your hands without more information.
Age, pictures etc would help 8D

Whether he a male or not, I would separate him from the poor hen that is brooding eggs. He could injure her or damage the eggs. Broody hens don't want to leave their nest to eat, drink or potty. You may have to force her off for a short time once a day to accomplish that.
