I have a 2 year old australorp. 3 days ago, she started nesting on the eggs. We have no rooster. I took the eggs from under her but she will still get in the hen house and nest over nothing. She is preventing my other girls to lay in the hen house. What can I do

You can move her to a wire crate with nothing under her. The air flow under her will help to break her broodiness. Do you have just 1 nest box? If you want to let her hatch you could get 2 or 3 fertile eggs from someone and move her to her own next box.
