They should but its never a guarentee, you can't really force them to go broody. WIth my seramas i have noticed the hens lay consistantly for about 10 days then they go broody. This time i left all the eggs in the nest from the flock and got 2 broodies instead of one
Make sure you mark the eggs so you know which ones are for hatching and which ones are freshly laid
