So basicly Sierra abandon her remaining 4 eggs, that were suppose to hatch soon. One was already pipped. She doesn't wanna sit on em anymore. I put them in the Bator. Will she accept them when they hatch if I put them back with her?!?!? This is her first time broody, and 3 have already hatched.

You could try to slip them under at night after they are at least 24 hours old, but don't wait to long. They need to still have the instinct to want to stay under mom. You will need to keep a close watch especially when it gets light the next morning. Were the eggs all set at the same time? How long ago did the first one hatch?
