    she looks like my hen, candle them and keep the eggs that are the most advanced if she has a bunch and if she is little, let her hatch out 9 or so, 40 eggs looks cute but they will not all hatch plus, if they were all laid at diff dates when the first few hatch she will want to leave the nest to feed her hatchlings leaving the other eggs.

    also good idea to mark the ones you want to keep.
