My cuckoo maran went broody on day 5 of incubating. Can I stick the eggs under her?

Help. I really wanted a hen to go broody but was not patient. She went broody on day 5 of incubation. Will the eggs keep maturing if I put them under her? Thank you!

Eggs were day 5 in an incubator?  Yes they will continue to develop if you let the hen brood them.

Yes, on day five of incubation. Is there a time limit or can you put them under a broody hen after putting them in the incubator?

No time limit.  They are just going from one form of incubation to another.
