What is her problem? Why does she keep changing nests?

I have a broody silkie that I put 6 eggs under yesterday. I got the eggs from a coworker because we don't have fertile eggs. She never ever gets off her nest (this has been going on for almost a year). I was all excited thinking that she would finally get to hatch some eggs.

I checked on her today and she left the eggs that I put under her last night and was sitting in a different nesting box on the eggs that my other hens laid today. UGH!!! Why did she do that?! Am I going to have to seclude her so she can't go to the other eggs?
