    If she won't set then she has made up her mind and there's no changing a woman's mind LOL.

    Sitting on eggs, or going "broody" is a hormonal change and there's no way to *make* her go broody, as stated above. Putting golf balls or fake eggs in the nest box may help encourage it. Never real eggs. If one of those gets broken or goes rotten, you've got a whole new problem on your hands.

    Best bet would be to buy or build an incubator. Good luck!
