I have a girl for the last 6 weeks I can't get her out of the nesting box. She is not laying eggs. Sometimes she has a egg under her but I know it's not hers cuz it is one of the Easter eggers. I take her out of box constantly but goes right back in. She is losing weight cuz not eating enough. We do not have a rooster. Was wondering if we get a fertile egg from man down street lwt her hatch it would it help. I have tried to keep her in separate cage with just food and water but she freaks out and even got out of cage somehow.
Any ideas or suggestions would be most helpful

Giving a broody an egg to hatch is probably the most effective way to stop persistent broodiness. I say go for it!
