Yes, if the hen is attacking a chick, you should remove that chick from her. If she attacks both, remove both.

If the chicks are more than one month old, they will probably do fine without her. She may be tired of raising them, and trying to make them go away.

Don't feel too bad. Lots of people make mistakes at first, but you're learning, and you won't make that particular mistake again :) And you did move the one chick, and did rescue the other chick--it's got a good chance of healing, because chickens are pretty impressive that way.
