If it were me I would let her go broody but I would set something up in the coop where she is comfortable. A cat carrier would work if the space is tiny. You are right it is safer in there. I suspect the eggs are no longer viable if they have been left in the cold for a couple of days. I would throw them out and let her start over or fix up a nest with other chicken's eggs so she has some right away.  I guess I should have asked first--do you have a rooster? If not this is all a moot discussion.  If you don't have a rooster and you don't want her to hatch eggs I'd look on the forum on how to break a broody. 

Let us know how you get on.

One more thing.  I just realized she has been on the eggs for only 5 days. I suppose it's possible they are still good. Hopefully others may have an opinion on this.
