Should I put some fake eggs under my broody hen?

My girl has been broody for at least a month now with an occasional egg here and there. I lift her off her nest twice/day so she will eat and drink. If I put some eggs under her will this expedite the broodiness?

No, it will keep her broody. If you want to break her up, don't let her stay on the nest, keep removing her. Put a ziplock bag with ice under her or put her in a cage so air can flow underneath her.
