    If she's not going to sit on them then I would add them. What's the worse that can happen? They don't hatch. So, you already know she's not going to do the job, so give it a try. After a few days candle them and see if they are moving around inside. It will just be a staggered hatch since you already have eggs in there.

    I agree with the last post.....you have nothing to lose and they still have a good chance of hatching.

    Let us know how you get on,
