Not all hens will sit. Leaving eggs in a nest won't make them want to hatch. Unless you know without a doubt your hen(s) is broody collect your eggs several times a day. There are many hens that NEVER brood and hatch eggs.

Just a note - leaving eggs in the nest with hens that do not brood can lead to egg eating.
