    I think it is reccomended to keep her on the wire so that her belly gets cooled off.

    No, i definitely wouldn't put a board in there.

    She'll be fine, and uncomfortable enough to help break her brood.

    After about 24 hours, let her out and see if she goes back to the nest. If she goes back to the nest (other than to lay an egg), just pop her back in the cage for another day. Probably won't have to do the second day though.
