safe to hatch babies in hen house?

I have a blond rhodie who is frequently broody, unfortunately. She lives with 7 other red hens and they never brood.
I've heard it not safe to allow hens to hatch in coop area.
Mine has plenty room and access to large run from there.
Will the other hens harrass and or even kill any potential babies if i don't take measures to break her set?
