do they brood as they lay? or do they brood only when they decide the final number of eggs in a clutch?

Many hens do not sit as tight on the first eggs and will sit tighter as more eggs are laid. This causes the hatchlings to be closer together and reduces the sibling rivalry deaths as the older birds compete against the younger birds for resources.
