    ....the eggs should be hatching any time now. I noticed that she just kicked 4 eggs out from under her. Why did she do this?

    Candle them. My broody did this and the egg she kicked out were not developing. If they are developing, put them back under her - they could have fallen out when she was rearranging the nest.
