Swap eggs under a Broody hen?

I have a hen whos been sitting on a clutch of eggs for long enough that they should've hatched. She's not looking like she's coming off so I was wondering if I could just put some fresh eggs under her and let her continue to sit on them?
:welcome If you are certain of the timing and certain that they are not developing, I would remove them and break her broodiness. Causing her to try to set another 21 days would be debilitating.
