Was she sitting on them before or did you just find her "stash"?
If she is sitting she will stay on the nest most
all day but if she is up running around then
she and maybe others are just laying there.
You might check them and toss out the spoiled
eggs. Mark the good eggs with pencil and leave them and maybe she will start sitting soon. You don't want her to sit old eggs. Just wait and see if she will sit for you. Good Luck.
