    If no hen is sitting on them now, chances are they will rot before your hen decides to brood them. If she ever does. I would collect them. If you really want to hatch chicks like this, then replace them with fake eggs or golf balls or smooth rocks. Store the eggs in a cool dark place. Wait a week, if one of your hens starts brooding on the golf balls, then switch out the balls for the eggs. Otherwise, eat them after a week.

    Put them in a sinkfull of water. If they float, toss them out.
