Hatching

I have recently started trying to hatch some eggs. I left them in with the broody and she was sitting on them but I noticed a couple days ago she stopped sitting on them. They are just about at 28 days. This afternoon I went in to check and two chicks were dead with no evidence of the shells. What could have happened?

(I'm going to assume that you are hatching chickens). The hen must've got tired of sitting on the eggs (as they take 21-23 days to hatch), and another passerby chicken decided to eat the eggs but left the chicks alone? OR the same hen decided to eat the eggs throughout a couple of days; though rare it happens. I'm not too sure either, but it's my best guess as to what happened.
