    she hatched out 2 recently but she lays more when she siting on some others. See like some time in agust she went broody so I gave her 3 eggs cause she didn't have any checked her the other day and she had 8 eggs plus a quail egg i gave her.

    Not quite sure what you are saying. When they are setting, they will steal eggs from others and add to the ones they are sitting on. If some have hatched, she should be mothering the chicks and should not be setting.
