Right my broody has 10 eggs under. I can't tell if she's struggling to cover all of them. What do you think. She's only a bantam but I can't see the eggs.

Depending on the size of the eggs, ten is borderline. If you cant see the eggs though, chances are she's probably got it covered (no pun intended).

If you're worried about the eggs possibly not being incubated properly you could try moving them to another broody hen who has less eggs, if you have one. Just make sure their hatch times are close together.
