    If she seems bothered by him and you can remove him without disturbing her, and it's possible to place him where they can see each other, then yes. But there is a risk she'll abandon her eggs if you do anything she doesn't like and removing her mate could be such a thing. And if the roo can't see her, he is likely to call for her, which might disturb her as well. So I'd only remove him if I think his presence is also likely to cause her to abandon her eggs.
