I have a broody red golden hen who has eggs due to hatch in a few days. She lives with a rooster (who are the chicks father), and I was wondering if the chicks and rooster will get along, or will I need to separate them?

Hopefully the momma will keep the others away from her chicks.
You won't really know until it happens.
Keeping a close eye on them is the best thing to do.
