I ended up with two sets of eggs, setting them a week apart. I do not have a hatcher. When it comes time to lockdown, can I take those eggs and put them under a broody hen?

You *could* put them under a broody but I would just leave them in the incubator and increase the humidity for the hatch and then lower it again until it's time for lockdown on your second batch of eggs. I did a staggered hatch recently and 9 out of 11 shipped eggs hatched a few days after my first batch hatched (set them three days apart I think). The second batch actually did way better than the first.
