Your other birds are telling your broody she needs to get her fluffy butt back on her eggs. I seperate my broodies, but keep them in the coop with everyone else so I don't have to reintergrate. Everyone stays familiar with each other, and broody gets her own food and water and gets left alone. Good luck!
