Any ideas for eggs?

My birds lay plenty of eggs but they never sit on them. I have a rooster that is constantly caught "doing the deed" but none of the hens act like their eggs are fertalized. By the time I get home from school, the eggs are already too cold to save. How can I get my birds, bantams and normal sized, to sit on their eggs and hatch some babies? I've never done this before so don't hold back any useful information.
I don't think you can make a hen go broody. I had some that were broody and 1 hatched out 6 eggs in the summer but no one's broody now. I think it might be partly due to the time of year - I expect them to get ready to sit in the spring.
Build an incubator out of a cooler. You can hatch the eggs there. They are fine to collect when you get home.
Read up on hatching eggs. Have fun.
