How long do you think it will take for her to return to "normal"? And how can I tell that she is?

Most will break in three days if done properly, 5 if they have been broody a long time. The longer they are broody the longer it takes. Caught early I can break mine in two days. You will tell it was successful because she will stop puffing up and making all those noises, screeches and cluck cluck.
Chickens, muscovy ducks, turkeys, donkeys , goats, dogs, fish, parakeets, a parrot, and a cat.

Chickens and dogs are healing to the soul.

I brake for squirrels.

Some of my birds.

Broodiness causes changes in the pecking order and that results in more friction between hens as their relative rank in the flock rises or falls. 

Keep your chickens safe from predators, buy and wear fur.
