5 days ago, I decided to leave the eggs in the coop so that maybe one of my hens would go broody. I have 20 eggs in there so far that are in 3 different nest boxes. Since none of my hens are laying on any of them, does this mean they won't try to hatch them? And should I just take the eggs out?

I don't think they will set the eggs if they have already collected 20, maybe take them out and try again? I'm no expert so i'm not positive though.
