She been broody for over three weeks now. I'm kicking the idea around of getting some fertile eggs for her to hatch. Is it too late to expect her to sit another three or four weeks?

You know your hen better than anyone, how's she looking? Some girls handle brooding better than others. If she's still looking good, not losing too much weight, occasionally getting off the nest to eat, drink and poop, it will probably be fine, but I would be quick about it. Another option would be to get some day old chicks and perform the old nighttime switcheroo/immaculate conception. Good luck!

I guess part of my concern is that she'll abandon the setting before they hatch. She gets off in the morning to eat and drink. She still looks good.
