The hen that is setting in the back of the truck still hasn't hatched. I'm not sure how long she has been setting them. Today when I got in the truck to go to the feed store I noticed an awful smell. I went around to check in the back and the smell is coming from her eggs and difinitely rotten! One egg wasn't under her and it looked odd. Should I just take her off this nest and throw out all the eggs?

I would do a visual test first to see if any are seeping or discolored, then do a smell test to see which one (s) are smelling and discard them. No reason to throw them all out if only a few are bad.
