Sometimes broodies are so determined that two hens will share the same nest. I'll get two broody Silkies at the same time and they'll set the same nestbox together. I don't have a roo but I let my Silkies brood empty nests until they end their broody term. If one goes broody it's usually not long before the other one does too and they'll set in the same empty box for days/weeks. If they're happy sharing the same box I leave them alone. Of course, I've never had a broody with a clutch in her nest so can't speak about Silkies sharing actual eggs together.
