Have a look at what's going on under the hen. If she did break an egg it would be in her and the unhatched chicks' best interest to get it cleaned up. You can safely wash the unhatched eggs and replace them, I've done it myself before. Use warm (not hot!!) running water and be as quick and careful as possible. Good luck!
