Can you set things up so that she can leave the nest whenever she wants? The biggest problem with 'locking' a hen on the nest is the possibility of defecation and spoiling of the nest. Most hens will leave the nest once or twice a day on their own.

Mark the eggs you have set, that way you can remove other eggs. She will go out if she feels the need. So do, so don't.
