Hello there and welcome to BYC!

I would wait a couple days until the chicks are at least a couple days old. And when you do move momma, I would confine her for a day or two so she doesn't try to run off without the chicks.

Good luck and congrats on the broody hatch!

Hello :frow and Welcome To BYC! Congratulations on the successful hatch! X2, if she and the chicks are in a secure place, you can wait a few days to move them, the hens usually don't go very far the first day or two anyhow.

Welcome to BYC! Please make yourself at home and we are here to help.

Yes I would also confine them for a few days. That way they can bond with mama and each other without be bothered by other chickens or predators.
