My Broody has been in that nest for a few weeks, only leaving to poop and eat. we take the eggs ( no rooster ) and she fluffs and is more determined then ever. Today we got several fertilized eggs from a great family who supply us with eggs during the winter when my girls slack some. any how we put the unwashed fertile eggs under her ( we did this last time and when we found them the next day they were all broken and eaten so we waited and yep she is seriously broody so here is what we did, we blocked off the front of the nest with screen, so the other birds do not come full force in the front to lay and bother her, and filled the other side full of litter to show them where to lay. ( they all like the side she is on now ) we kept the side open so she could come and go. was this wise? the nest is higher up, and I did not want her to loose eggs from falling from the nest. we are hoping to have her in a new small coop when they are born. take a look and see if this is ok, and if you think its ok.
