Broody hen dilema
Featured Stories on BackYard Chickens
They should be okay. My chickens play musical nest, they harass the broody hens so they move out and go to another nest. Make sure to mark the eggs that you want to hatch just in case another hens lay new eggs, this way you can pull out the new eggs. Just keep in mind that there may be a day or two difference between them when they hatch.

Yes, I have move eggs from one coop to anther nest. The thing to keep in mind is how long have they been under the hen. If one hen has been sitting for a week and then you introduce new eggs. The chicks from the first eggs will hatch and the second batch will take longer. If the eggs are one or two day appart, it should be okay as the hen will stay on the nest until the other eggs hatch.
