I think it would be safe do do that, CH, but you should experiment first. Take a couple of the ping pong balls out and replace them with a couple of eggs. If she doesn't notice the change, then do the same thing again tomorrow. And the next day, and the next day. If you try to put all the eggs in at one time, she make stop setting again. You can put your new eggs in the incubator with the older eggs and keep removing a few of the older eggs every day until they are all under the hen. That's what I recommend...
