Hello,
I've had a hen that's been broody for a little over a week now. She comes out of her box once a day maybe twice here and there. I wasn't sure if she was actually laying or broody, but since it's been a week of this it's clear to me. Is it too late to put fertile eggs under her? She's been sitting on unfertilzed ones for the last week. Or should I throw these fertile eggs in an incubator and wait her another "broody episode"?

No, not to late at all. Swap out the infertile eggs for the fertile ones next time she gets up for a break. Good luck with the hatch!
