New chicken farmer with his first broody hen

When I went to gather eggs this evening my little bantam was sitting in a nesting box and wouldn't get off. I checked on her an hour later and she hadn't moved.

I am assuming that she has decided to hatch a few eggs and would like her to. She is in the coop which is in the run. Food and water are in the run. Do I need to put food and water in the coop or will she come out to eat and drink?

Thanks for your help.
