I've been lucky and my broody took very good care of the chicks she hatched so the other hens didn't bother them. You may have to separate the momma and baby (or babies) until they are a bit older.

wait till it gets dark outside when they are sitting you may be able to catch them better at that time. I know during the day I can't pet my pullets but at night I can go out and am able to pet them. Hope this helps
