    As long as the broody hen is still nurturing them, I would leave the chicks with their mama. When she returns to her normal self, sans broody hormones, and resumes her own personal life, ignoring her chicks, then you may take it as a sign the chicks are ready to go to other homes or whatever you have planned for them.
