I'm not sure who you put in with the rooster? If the eggs are fertile they may hatch, don't overload your broody hen with alot of eggs though, and how many days apart are the eggs? You don;t want to keep putting eggs under her cause they won't develope at the same rate as the ones she's sitting on, so when the first eggs hatch the mama will kick out the ones that don't.
If you want to hatch chicks, let the other hens lay a clutch and see if they go broody
