    If she gets up she is not completly broody. If broody they will stay after you take the eggs and sit on an empty nest. When you boot them out they will come right back. Be all puffed up and grouchy. Maybe even peck you.

    She may be staying in the nest for some other reason. Hope this helped a little.
