    That's neat, Mamahen. Also, Chicken girl, any place you can put her where she is protected and away from the other hens, in a small area. Large enough for the nest box, a feeder and waterer, and a little room to stretch her legs. Couple square feet is enough. She won't spend much time off the nest eating, drinking and pooing. once every day or 2. Maybe a rabbit cage? large box like a large appliance comes in, etc? Anywhere her nest box, feed and water will fit, and she can get to it.
    If she is where other hens can get to her, they will lay eggs in her nest, and soon have enough eggs in there that she can't cover them all, and they will start incubating at different times.
