I was told my broody hen needed to be alone in her own spot or pen, so i moved her and her eggs. She would not sit not return to her eggs until i put them all back where they were. The eggs were one week into setting, and were cold for at least 24 hours. is there any hope for them to survive. I'm so upset by this.

I've heard of incubated eggs getting ice cold and then hatching out fine. The drop in temperature may cause them to hatch later than they should though. I'd say let the hen continue sitting and candle the eggs after a day or 2 to see what's going on in there. Fingers crossed they'll be O.K!
