2 hens gone brood 3 days apart 1 Buff, 1 Amaricana

Hi! I have 2 hens who have gone brood 3 days apart. One is in the nursery and has 5 eggs under her. She previously had been brood with 11 eggs under her but decided to start anew half way thru the incubation period and is now sitting on 5 eggs. I've since put the abandoned eggs in the incubator.

I have another her who has gone brood as of today and has 6 eggs under her. I was thinking about moving her into the same nursery with the other brood hen. They would have access to 6 nest boxes between them and the nursery is about 3 ft. x 3 ft.

Do you think this will work?

Thanks for any insight into this situation.
