    This is why I have a rabbit hutch and a large dog kennel that I let my broodies use, I've had too many abandoned nests. If they have no other choice, they tend to stay put. I wish I could help, but an animal is a living thing, and it has a mind of it's own. If she has given up, she has given up.
