mom wont leave her nesting box

I've had a run of 3 broods who end up one egg. One hatched today. I usually remove them from the coop while broody, then once chicks hatch move mom,and chick(s) to chick yard.
at his mom will not leave her nesting box. I could move thr box after dark to where I plan to have her with chick.
My other question is my mom who hatched a chick a week ago. shes biting and attacking me and any chicken that comes near her. I'm wondering if I should keep her and her chick in their own confined space a little longer before letting her roam?
