    I would gently remove the eggs and candle them to see if they are still viable.
    Were the eggs all placed under at the same time?
    I know this may seem silly to ask but my first broody had hens laying eggs on top of her after setting her clutch and I ended up with a hatch that took 7 days to hatch 8 chicks.
