    How about possibly throwing her some scratch before you enter the pen to see if that will keep her entertained. Beyond that I would take her out of the pen & put her in a cage where you could tame her down. Idea's on that would be to handle her daily, try to give you treats by hand until she excepts them. If none of that works, she may have to go.

    Do you know what breed she is?

    Maybe a roll away nest would help?
