There really isn't a reason to remove them. My mama hen raised her chicks in the coop with the rest of the chickens. They are now 6 weeks old and full fledged members of the flock. I have another broody setting a clutch in the coop now. Barring unforseen complications, she will raise them in the coop, just like her sister did.
